“This is a poem from the heart Something I wanted to say from the start. I walked in with my beige and blue Grabbed a chair and sat next to you. You couldn't hear some words I said But you heard with your heart and into your head. We talked about the future and the past Knowing the day was short but we made it last. But when I came back on the day the week ends I never ever saw you again.”

Jaleel Jordan

Intergenerational

Intergenerational

Through its Myrna Brind Intergenerational Project, NetworkArts literally bridges the ages by partnering students with seniors. These projects provide opportunities for new and meaningful exchanges among children and seniors as students explore novel concepts like technological highlights of the last century or how to create nursing homes with heart. The finale consists of the students and seniors working together to make a lasting impression in the form of a mosaic. Recent topics include the passing millennium, role models, the Quilt Project, movie memories, Philadelphia's musical heritage and The Tree of Life.

Tour some of the magnificent mosaics created from this and other programs.
