There's an abundance of activities on the internet highway for all, but I do think our seniors miss out a little on age-appropriate activities. Having said that, there is no age limit when it comes to art, craft, stories and friendships. Luckily the Australian Multicultural Community Services feel the same way and have launched an Art and Craft Cafe for Seniors. This weekly online cafe is the place to share your passion for arts and crafts and if you're interested in taking part, contact Tinatin via email - tinatin.panchvidze@amcservices.org.au or call 0412 418 596. This lovely lady will sort you out. Anyone can join.

What a great way for our valued multicultural elderly to connect and reduce social isolation. Meet new friends, learn something new and share knowledge and stories. There's something for everyone so join in and stay connected in these uncertain times.


Workshops are as follows.

Wednesdays 10.30am-11.30am - Knitting Cafe for Seniors - yarn, patterns, woollen garments; sit back with a cuppa and join in or learn something new.
Thursdays 10.30am-11.30am - Art and Craft Cafe for Seniors - art and craft can take many forms; bring yours and you may well inspire someone else to take it on. Share your skills, tell your stories.
Thursdays 2-3pm - Online or over the phone IT Support Cafe
Fridays 10.30am-11.30am - Friendship Cafe for Seniors - a great place to just sit and share and chat with others as we help each other rise from the isolation of this pandemic

I do realise it mentions CALD seniors and CALD carers, but I contacted Tinatin the Project Manager myself and she assures me everyone can join.
