Seniors Week goes virtual in 

motionmailapp.com

 

I am so very excited to announce that we are partnering with Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) this year to launch Queensland Seniors Week in style.

QPAC’s Drawn Together invites people all over Queensland to share morning tea with friends and family, young and old, celebrating the powerful relationships that exist across generations. From the comfort of your own home, join our morning tea as our guests discuss the big, complicated and fun issues of our times.

Hosted by QPAC Scholar in Residence Professor Judith McLean, this free online event marks the commencement of Queensland Seniors Week 2020 and includes performances from some of Queensland’s most outstanding artists – western classical and traditional Asian fusion ensemble JADE New World CollectiveBabushka Cabaret, the Brat Pack Tappers, Cairns indie-folk artist Greta Stanley and Townsville musical theatre performer Sarah Murr.

Gather for morning tea at home as our own morning tea guests – Dame Quentin BryceAunty Colleen Wall, Creative Director of Briefs Factory Fez Fa’anana and internationally renowned didgeridoo performer and pianist David Williams – discuss ideas of happiness, heritage, the value of the arts in a community and for individuals, and those things that can make all of us a little bit wicked. 

Do you have questions?  I am here to help.  You can reach me on seniorsweek@cotaqld.org.au or by phoning 07 3316 2908.

I can't wait to celebrate with you!

Hugs


Our favorite embrace.  Not all of us can share one at the moment but that doesn't mean we can't share the sentiment of a hug.  

We won't be without hugs forever, but during this time we can let someone know we are thinking of them by giving them a virtual hug.
GIVE A HUG TODAY!

Together: the stories of us

A people powered project aimed at showcasing the diversity of Queenslanders through stories, photos, videos, and recipes. 

Without a doubt we are living in an interesting time due to the COVID pandemic.  But we are not alone.

Together we are supporting one another.  Together we are learning new skills, and ways to keep in touch. Together we are aiming to inspire, celebrate, and stay socially connected even when we are physically distanced. Together we will thrive.

By sharing our stories we can connect, find aspects of ourselves in others and of others in ourselves. We all have stories and that is what brings us together.
SHARE YOUR STORY
