YPSWA Stitch me up project

smaller poster_Stitch me up_BW_Layout 1September 8, 2015 – Young Professionals and Skilled Workers Association (YPSWA) is proud to launch today a new project that will mentor and engage seniors, adults and youth, alike.  YPSWA’s new project, which is called, “Stitch me up” Project is based on the premise, “art by seniors for seniors, adults and youth”.

This project is open to all interested individuals, who want to improve their stitching, cross-stitching and art skills and techniques or simply engage in the artistic activities for pleasure in the circle of friends, peers, helpful mentors and youth.  In fact, no prerequisite skills are necessary in order to participate in the “Stitch me up” Project.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 1pm, YPSWA instructors will be sharing their skills with seniors and seniors, in return, will be sharing with their experiences and expressing them through art. Location of the workshops will take place at #98 Cavell Ave, as was the “Expression through the Arts” Project.

The goal of this project is to have seniors mentor seniors, adult, youth and/or youth mentoring seniors.  All participants will decide together on art subjects, topics and designs by tapping in to their cultural, ethnical, artistic life experiences.  Diversity amongst participants will help them to create their art.

Through this project, YPSWA also attempts to combat in the community isolationism among seniors, narrow down the intergeneration gap between seniors and other groups of society as well as provide meaningful opportunities for young artists to collaborate with older and more professional artists.

YPSWA is a not-for-profit and federally registered and community-based organization, which offers a great way for young professionals, skilled workers and apprentices to network, socialize and expand their professional horizons. Two years ago, YPSWA organized and implemented a similar project, called, “Expression through the Arts” Project.
