Art & Food Storytelling Festival (2016)


The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) and ALPHA Education partnered together on a new initiative entitled The Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop. Using storytelling in the form of art and food, senior participants went through a series of workshops to foster individual expression and provide them with the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with the broader Chinese community. The project aimed to address the issue of social isolation amongst Chinese seniors and to promote intergenerational exchange with Toronto’s youth through the process of letter writing and art sharing.

To mark the conclusion of the Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop series, CCNCTO and ALPHA Education held a final celebration, the Art & Food Storytelling Festival.
