Metropolis, lines of hopes and futures for seniors is a photography series of images taken by seniors and residents of the Durocher Residence in Montreal. The exhibit is the conclusion of a 5-month intergenerational digital photography workshop series conducted with the residents. Participants were lent digital cameras and they explored ways to use the devices, learned and discussed photographic approaches, and co-organized the vernissage. This exhibition is our way of jointly presenting to the public what can emerge when people from different generations come together in an creative environment to learn more about each other and about digital technologies. During the event, there will be a bilingual (French and English) Q + A with the artists, and food and beverages will be served. We look forward to sharing this compelling and exciting work with you.
This digital photography project was developed through the partnership between ACT and the community organization Groupe Harmonie, and as part of the InterACTion project, a project that brings together the residents of Durocher Residence, researchers and students from Concordia University, members of Groupe Harmonie and local volunteers.
