What a genius idea! In West Seattle, WA, an incredible and unique program brings together the very young with the very old to sing, dance, play, share lunch and more.
Providence Mount St. Vincent nursing home and the Intergenerational Learning Centre share the same building, and the over 400 retirees and pre-schoolers interact throughout the day creating lasting bonds and heartwarming friendships.
I came across this project on social media recently and cannot help but be moved by it. Director, Evan Briggs, started off funding a project to film a documentary about this special program titled “Present Perfect“. She filmed 3 times a week over the 2012-2013 calendar year. Through a kickstarter campaign she was able to raise the funds needed to edit the film and hopefully get it out to all of us to watch in the summer of 2016, and I cannot wait!
What do you think about this project?!
