What is this project about?
OV-CAOS and our community partners are working with seniors to honour their lives and contributions to our community. We are doing this by collecting stories and taking photographic portraits of up to fifty seniors. The portraits are taken in a location chosen by the participants.
The stories and portraits will be exhibited publicly at the end of the project and will also be turned into a printed book.
