Tables laden with paintbrushes, watercolors, glue sticks, scissors and sketchbooks are a clear indication that something creative is going on in a multi-purpose room at period house senior center in Sonoma, but there’s more than just art taking shape in this airy space.

As the students prepare their supplies for the start of the fortnightly course Art workshopthey look forward to something beyond teaching arts and crafts practices.

Beyond learning to paint, making keepsake boxes, creating collages or felting wool, they plan to get together – in person – to chat, help each other, learn from each other. others and create something beautiful and unique.

“I made some great friends in this class, people I know I can call,” said Julia Grey, who, at 68, is one of the youngest students in the studio. “I love the camaraderie. I’ve made some great friends.

Many have attended the art workshop since before the coronavirus pandemic forced the popular nonprofit to close in 2020. Although some classes and services were offered online and curbside , the return to in-person programming in July 2021 after nearly 17 months was a celebration for many.

“The effects of isolation on older adults are enormous,” said Katie DeJongh, the center’s program manager. “We did everything we could as a community and we did a great job, but nothing can replace people coming together.”

The art studio is one of the many engagement opportunities at Vintage House. The vibrant center, with some 1,600 members, averaged around 60 classes per week before the pandemic and has now climbed back to around 50, including hybrid offerings for those not yet comfortable meeting at the inside.

According to their website, doors have been open to Vintage House since 1977 and it was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1983. Funding comes from several sources, with individual donations, grants and foundations providing the most much of it last year; government grants, program income, rent and membership dues also contribute to Vintage House’s budget.

With more than 300 employees and a small salaried team, some 1,600 seniors with annual subscriptions can use services and classes with more than 60 virtual and in-person classes per week. The annual membership fee for Vintage House is $50.

Encourage budding artists

For instructor Carol Davis, the art studio is an ideal way to share her talents, encourage creativity and foster a sense of community. She pivoted with COVID-19 concerns by limiting her class size and asking for advance registration. She also spaces everyone out, but close enough to converse, and keeps doors and windows open for ventilation. She enforced face mask mandates when required by the county.

Keeping students safe but engaged is a priority. Vintage House, Davis said, “is a hub of the senior community.”

A retired primary school teacher, she stressed the importance of continuing to learn throughout life. Her workshop is designed to teach new skills every session. No two days are alike.

Deborah Patterson is traveling from San Rafael to attend the workshop.

“It’s worth it,” she said, “because you can create things that you can actually give people as gifts.” Additionally, ever-changing projects provide learning opportunities. “You never really get bored.”

She and a friend approached the staff at Vintage House several years ago to recommend Davis as an art teacher. They had met in different classes, and Davis happily agreed to create a “workshop” where students could explore many forms of arts and crafts. Although she never pursued art professionally, Davis “always made art,” she said. “When I look back, I’ve done it all my life.”

She takes free online art classes, sometimes reuses donated objects into works of art, imitates artistic things she spots in shop windows, and regularly searches for projects that her students might be interested in. A thick art journal showcases his talents and creativity.

While some of his students have little or no artistic experience, a few are skilled artists and have sold their work, but come for friendship and fun.

“I want to come to class and see what other people are doing,” said Ann Hollister, 90, an artist and the oldest person in the studio. She is a retired professional calligrapher who ran a calligraphy and graphics business in Oakland, Pengraphics. “I just make art for fun.”

“It’s a real haven of peace”

Carol Yasinsac considers herself “more like a writer, a person of words” than an artist, but she loves the studio.

Monday 14e In November, the Pacific Tourism Organization (SPTO) launched a week-long plastics reuse workshop in Apia, Samoa, as part of the Pacific Tourism Waste Action Initiative (PTWAI). The PTWAI is a collaborative effort between SPTO and a Fiji-based craftsman, Mr. Warwick Marlow. The initiative promotes strong community engagement in the reuse of plastic waste to maintain cleaner communities and provide participants with alternative sources of income.

Successfully conducted in Kiribati, Tuvalu, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Fiji and FSM, the initiative has been well received and even attracted international recognition across the Creative Tourism Awards 2020.

Acknowledging the importance of the workshops, SPTO Sustainable Tourism Manager Ms. Christina Leala Gale noted that COVID-19 has forced the region to consider a more sustainable approach to tourism that is economically resilient, environmentally sustainable and socially sustainable. inclusive.

“The Pacific Tourism Waste Action initiative works through communities to support the achievement of the SDGs, SPTO and Pacific Sustainable Tourism Policy Framework vision and objectives as well as the national tourism development strategies of our member countries”.

“With many SPTO members now striving to become tourism champions, promoting a circular economy is key to supporting efforts to minimize the use of plastics,” said Ms Leala Gale.

Reiterating those sentiments, SPTO Chief Executive Christopher Cocker stressed the importance of transforming tourism as the industry seeks to recover from the pandemic.

“We know we can’t just go back to old practices and trends. Pacific Tourism must build back, smarter, stronger and better. With the help of key strategies such as the Blue Pacific Continent Strategy 2050 and the PSTPF, we have clear guidance on how to leverage opportunities to inspire community action, provide alternative sources of livelihoods and encourage a strong and diverse commitment to environmental protection and conservation”.

“In early November, SPTO hosted the first Pacific Sustainable Tourism Leadership Summit (PSTLS), which was an important platform for engagement with members, partners and other stakeholders. under the theme of “Partnership for a resilient, prosperous and inclusive Pacific through sustainable tourism”, the Summit allowed us to discuss common challenges, lessons learned and mechanisms to help the long-term recovery of the industry. PTWAI is one such mechanism that aligns well with the PSTLS recommendations and we are excited to roll this workshop out to Samoa,” Mr. Cocker said.

The trip to Samoa also provided the SPTO with a valuable opportunity to implement the following over a two-week period (November 11-28):

  • Samoa – PTWAI
  • Tokelau – PTWAI
  • Stakeholder consultation workshop for the development of the Tokelau Sustainable Tourism Policy (TSTP)

It’s a new day for the experimental electro trio Moving Day. Not only do they have a killer debut record, “Slumber in Motion,” Moving Day is hosting a record release party at 7 p.m. on November 12 at Workshop 13 at 13 Church St., Ware.

Composed of singer Robbie Juarez, electric cellist Dylan Coffey-Moore and synthesizer Rocco Desgres, Moving Day sounds like the lost collaboration between Radiohead and Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention. Inspired by modern bands Advance Base, Nation of Language and LCD Soundsystem, as well as early synth bands Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, Moving Day is ethereal and emotional, haunting and hallucinatory, passionate and progressive.

Self-described “synth pop for buzzkills,” Juarez’s voice shifts from spooky whispers to haunting falsetto as Desgres and Coffey-Moore together weave dreamlike sonic tapestries for the singer’s tortured and tender tales to unfold and be engulfed.

Oct. 29 – GROTON – As the city seeks answers on how to better protect downtown Mystic from the effects of rising sea levels and climate change, people can share their own experiences and learn more about a resilience and sustainability plan being developed.

“Mystic has always had a lot of flooding due to its position on the coast, and it’s recognized that flooding is getting worse and there are other climate change issues, like heat, which we also want better. understand,” said Megan Granato, sustainability and resiliency manager for the City of Groton.

The first of three scheduled public workshops will be held Tuesday from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at Union Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall, located at 119 High St. in Mystic.

“This will be our first public meeting, and we will speak with attendees about their experiences with flooding and other climate change impacts in downtown Mystic,” Granato said. “These comments will help inform the project team of vulnerable locations and infrastructure that the plan will need to address. During the meeting, we will also provide an overview of the project and its next steps.”

The city hopes to complete the project in the fall of 2023, Granato said.

The city received a $90,000 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Long Island Sound Futures Fund for the project, with the city pledging $60,000 in matching funds, including about $55,000 in staff time and $5,000 in cash, Jon Reiner, director of planning and development services for the city, said in January.

The grant application identified downtown Mystic, where officials have been asked to plan for a projected sea level rise of 20 inches by 2050, as one of the city’s most vulnerable areas, because it is low and densely populated and has many “historic houses”. , businesses and infrastructure,” which were mostly built before the Federal Emergency Management Agency flood zones and National Flood Insurance Program regulations.

Granato said public engagement is key to the success of the plan, and people can participate through public workshops and the city’s community engagement platform, GreaterGroton.com.

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc., the project consultant, will travel to the field to conduct assessments, including buildings, utility lines, and other critical infrastructure, which will be compiled into a vulnerability assessment.

“Once this vulnerability assessment is complete, we will look at opportunities to improve community resilience in our study area,” Granato said.

As the city’s sustainability and resilience manager, Granato will not only oversee the plan, but help the city prepare for and respond to the impacts of climate change. She said she will also look for ways for the city to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Starting next year, the city will develop a climate action plan.

“Megan brings a wealth of experience to this position,” said Groton Town manager John Burt. “She has started and is already active in seeking funding opportunities and providing valuable insight as we develop future plans. We are very lucky to have her, and I am confident she will a very positive difference in our efforts to combat climate change and sea level rise.”

Granato started the new town post in August. She has a background in natural resource management and recently worked for the State of Maryland on Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts, including climate adaptation.

“I am originally from Connecticut and am excited to return to my home state to work on these important issues of resilience and sustainability,” she said.

Keep Olympic News Free

Support insidethegames.biz for just £10

For nearly 15 years now, insidethegames.biz has been at the forefront of fearlessly reporting on what is happening in the Olympic Movement. As the first website not to be placed behind a paywall, we have made information about the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Commonwealth Games and other major events more accessible to everyone than ever before.

insidethegames.biz has earned a worldwide reputation for the excellence of its reporting and the breadth of its coverage. For many of our readers in over 200 countries and territories around the world, the website is an essential part of their daily lives. The ping of our free daily email alert, sent every morning at 6.30am UK time, 365 days a year, landing in their inbox, is as much a part of their day as their first cup of coffee.

Even during the worst times of the COVID-19 pandemic, insidethegames.biz maintained its high level of daily reporting on all news around the world. We were the first publication in the world to report on the threat facing the Olympic Movement from the coronavirus and have since provided unprecedented coverage of the pandemic.

As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, insidethegames.biz would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your vital support would enable us to continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic Movement and the events that shape it. This would mean that we can keep our website open to everyone. Last year nearly 25 million people read insidethegames.bizmaking us by far the largest source of independent information on what’s going on in the world of sport.

Every contribution, large or small, will help maintain and improve our global coverage in the coming year. Our small, dedicated team has been extremely busy over the past year covering the revamped Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, an unprecedented logistical challenge that has stretched our limited resources to the limit.

The rest of 2022 will be no less busy or less challenging. We had the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, where we sent a team of four journalists, and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the World Summer University and the Asian Games in China, the World Games in Alabama and several world championships are coming up. Plus, of course, there’s the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Unlike many others, insidethegames.biz is available for everyone to read, regardless of what they can afford to pay. We do this because we believe that sport belongs to everyone and everyone should be able to read the news regardless of their financial situation. While others try to profit financially from the information, we are committed to sharing it with as many people as possible. The more people can keep abreast of world events and understand their impact, the more transparent sport will be forced to be.
