A global exchange of empathy and wisdom between elders and young adults with the goal of reclaiming our humanity, emotional intelligence, and connection.
Connecting young adults with their elders (with and without dementia) through music, and transformational education, with the goal of creating meaning and growth for all involved. We will inspire this intergenerational mission through film.

Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing
is to create stable communities in which the terrible
disease of loneliness can be cured”
