In the Gallery
Hello In There, Hello Out There is a curated compilation of fifteen three dimensional artworks, created by senior citizens in retirement homes and care facilities in Saskatchewan throughout 2014, under the direction of Project Artist Chrystene Ells. The project was specifically designed to address critical issues commonly faced by older adults in our province; to help them feel included, heard, important, valued, and respected as individuals; to engage with them by listening, and inviting them to talk; and helping them to make visual art pieces that communicate the things that are important to them.
The result is a powerful collection of memories and artworks that we feel is important to share extensively, stimulating dialogue in our society, and honoring this valuable, but often neglected, segment of our society.
