The Silver Generation, our elders, have a wealth of knowledge and experience. However, many of their tales and trials are either forgotten or deemed insignificant.

This workshop co-facilitated by Juriah Atan and Shalni Doshi, aims to introduce activities to trigger the seniors' fond memories and encourage sharing their stories with family and friends. In addition to building better ties with their kith and kin, the hope is to give our seniors a renewed sense of confidence and relevance.
