Amplifying Voices Video #4: Friendship and Community

Amplifying Voices

Amplifying Voices is a video project that explores the lives and realities of six seniors who receive meals-on-wheels from Santropol Roulant.

Friendship and Community: Kindred spirits, neighbours, and community members are important in all of our lives. Find out how these six seniors connect with their communities and how they feel about it.

Friendship and Community/Amitié et Communauté – Amplifying Voices – Santropol Roulant from Rafael Favero on Vimeo.

Who participated? Santropol Roulant’s meals-on-wheels clients and volunteers collaborated to create these videos. While the clients provided the content by sharing their rich stories and intimate details from their everyday lives, many volunteers of all ages interviewed, filmed and edited the videos.

Why watch? Meet Alda, Augistine and Anne. Get to know Edgar and his dancing marionettes, Jan’s idea of how his neighbours should treat him, Rosanne and her orchids and her view of seniors.
