Listening and being curious and wide-eyed in the world, I think, is what allows us to move forward,
progress, evolve and learn and alter our behaviour and become more self-aware.
I think that listening is kind of what it’s all about.
~Andrew Zuckerman, Artist
Being Curious is a series of presentations from local & national initiatives who are demonstrating active ways of enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage them to get more curious about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually.
The aim of the Webinar series is to share information about a range of topics and projects to spark curiosity to enhance the lives of older people. Our hope is these sessions will kindle deeper understanding and further engagement with these projects, connecting older people to empowering practices or even ignite new ventures and relationships. Join in to listen to one session or many.
