The film 'Alive Inside,' showed how Music, Relationship, and Empathy can transform the end of life.
Before Covid hit we had created a program we called Comm-University-
We paired 13 schools with one nursing home in N. California and had 400-600 youth visiting each month.
This was transformative for everyone!
Students, from kindergarten to college, participated
in teacher-led, curriculum-based learning.
The program was being documented a new film
we hoped would change eldercare and public education.
The film was titleed, 'Alive Inside: Together.'
But then, Covid hit-
Kids and Elders could not come together,
and the program was shut down.
We are working on restarting as Covid gets under control.
