Direct[message]: Access to Engagement for the Aging
Community was a collaborative, community based, arts
informed research project working with the three cities
of Hamilton, London, and Guelph in Southwestern
Ontario (Canada). The overarching goal of the project
was to make artistic engagement (doing arts including
folk art and crafting, appreciating art, and learning
about artistic practices and artists) more accessible for
older adults through the development of innovative
digital technologies.
