Low income seniors are often marginalized and isolated. Nevertheless, each senior has a story to share about their lives which can amaze us. Students will team up and visit VSMS (Vancouver Second Mile Society) in two branches (Downtown South and East-side), talk to the seniors, and record the talk / sharing of the senior about their lives and VSMS impact on them. These snippets will then be compiled to create a short video clip of about 15 minutes and published. The main objective of this project is to increase awareness and appreciation of the community about an important part of the population who are rarely heard.
