Partnerships & Community Engagement

Throughout the course of the year, we have been able to foster partnerships and community engagement.  During our monthly art sessions, local seniors and community and school groups were invited in to participate in the creation of the art pieces.  This has been an opportunity to explore issues relating to seniors in an inter-generational communal setting.


Through the kindness of community partners, Sage and Time Art Pieces have been housed for public display at the following locations in the City of Greater Sudbury:


"Health For All" - Public Health Sudbury and Districts


"Sage & Time" Song - MP Paul Lefebfevre Community Office


"Canada Day" - Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association


"National Indigenous Peoples Day" - Christ The King Parish


"International Day of Friendship" -  Maison McCulloch Hospice 


"Franco-Ontarian Day" - MPP Jamie West Community Office


"National Seniors Day" - Finlandia Village
