Photo-Artists Emerge at Tonari Gumi!

IMG_0895Over the past three months, Tonari Gumi partnered with Emiko Morita in her “PhotoVoice” project which consisted of some 10 workshops held at Tonari Gumi, where our seniors developed skills in photography and storytelling. The camera (whether a small hand-held camera, a tablet camera or a cell phone camera) became a tool, empowering the seniors so they could express themselves and share their stories and perspectives. Tonari Gumi is excited that it was able to partner with Emiko Morita in carrying out this project to help our seniors to connect in yet another way with their friends and relatives._9740429 Some of the photos created by the group are displayed at Tonari Gumi and the display is open to the public.
