From Knowledge to Action

 

Age Friendly Edmonton’s Knowledge to Action grants were created to tell the stories of people in this city working together to make our community a place that values, respects and supports the well-being of seniors. With the assistance of a writer, each organization created a “storybook” to capture their work.

The GeriActors embarked on an intergenerational playwriting and teaching initiative. They wrote and performed new plays that viewed growing older from multiple generations. In addition to playwriting they worked with a high school drama class and created a teaching manual to help prepare more people to be able to facilitate experiential intergenerational theatre storytelling.

Thank you to both Age Friendly Edmonton and the Alberta Lottery Fund who helped us develop our new plays over the last few years.
