Community Links invites creative submissions by or featuring older adults

COVID-19 Featured Online First

Older adults across Nova Scotia are being invited to share what they have been making, baking or creating since March, when COVID-19 made it necessary to stick close to home.  

 Community Links, a non-profit focused on aging well, has launched a campaign inviting submissions of creative works by or featuring older Nova Scotians. Photos of paintings, sculptures, homemade masks or baked goods; videos of dance routines and choir songs as well as digital artwork are all welcome. 

Submissions should represent the theme “Creativity and Connection during COVID-19.” Community Links will share selected submissions on its online platforms. 

Submission requirements are broad in order to celebrate the wide spectrum of creative talents Nova Scotians possess. The work must either be created by or feature an older Nova Scotian (age 55+) and should be submitted by November 7.  

Photo and video submissions must be of a relatively high quality, with the subject clearly visible. Cell phone cameras and webcams can be used if they are high definition.

Community Links is a non-profit organization operating since 1992 with the goal of ensuring older adults age can well in their communities.  Regional Coordinators work throughout the province to support coalitions which share their vision for age-friendly, inclusive communities.
