Our mission is to empower and integrate Third Age people, Women and Immigrants through education, culture and technology.
Our vision is Third Age people, Women and Immigrants to gain a leading role in the productive chain as well as in market and social development.
Through cultural, technological and educational projects, we support the three main categories affected by the demographic change:
Second Generation Immigrants
#1: Expression workshop 65+
Through theatre games, narrative techniques, music and movement the elderly exercise their expression and creativity. Through the workshops they improve life quality, while developing their imagination and spirit. They increase cognitive clarity, body function and rhythm while improving memory as well as pre-existing kinetic problems.
