  • Poetry and Ghazals: Seniors express and share meaningful moments in their lives
  • Visual Arts: Seniors practice fine motor skills by moving their fingers, hands and wrists through mandala-making, print-making, drawing and painting.





  • A series of year-round, participatory workshops in Bollywood and Bhangra dance, Hindi & Tamil music, ghazal writing, mandala-making, print-making, filmmaking and more, available both virtually and in-person
