Check out this lovely story aboot older Canadians creating collages of their lives for the Calgary Seniors’ Social Link (SSL) Heritage Collage Program. The SSL initiative gives seniors of different cultural backgrounds – some of whom do not speak English – a chance to share their life stories with each other visually.
Linda Wong, who emigrated from Hong Kong almost 50 years ago, said, “I didn’t want to just cut up stuff and glue it on, I wanted to do it with my heart. They wanted a story, so I thought of a story of where I come from and what I’ve done in my lifetime.”
How aboot it? What would be on your collage?
