MailArt4Seniors is co-funded by the Erasmus+ program of the EU. (Project id:2021-1-LT01-KA220-ADU-000030408), and focuses on creating a new innovative non-formal training program for adult trainers (social workers dealing with the elderly, professionals working in nursing homes, geriatric psychologists, geriatric nurses, artists offering workshops to the elderly) to help them cope with isolation and loneliness, ensure their personal well-being, maintain their social life and enjoy a quality everyday life during the pandemic through mailart activities.
As part of the program, a multiplier event & workshop was held on the 21st April 2023, by FixInart with the collaboration of Thessaloniki Center of Photography(Vasilis Karkatselis and Thanasis Raptis) and Collage Artist Dorothee Mesander.
During the event 33 participants were informed about the project MailArt4Seniors, the intellectual outputs so far, and the e-learning platform at mailart4seniors.eu. The 3 trainers showed them various techniques of mailart, stamp making, and collage. Some of the artworks created during this workshop will be exhibit in the International Collage Day on 13th May, 2023 at Thessaloniki.
