Community Links invites submissions of creative works by older adults demonstrating Creativity and Connection during COVID-19.

Celebrate how older adults in Nova Scotia are contributing to community and staying connected during this time of physical distancing.
The campaign:

COVID-19 has changed how we interact with one another in ways we could not have imagined. During this time of social isolation, physical distancing and increased concern about health and safety it is more important than ever to remember that we can connect with each other even if it can’t always be in person.
Submissions and the stories behind them will be made into social media posts to be shared on Community Links’ online platforms including Facebook, Twitter and our website.*
This campaign is intended to share, highlight, and celebrate the creative ways older adults contribute to Nova Scotia through visual and physical art as well as how individuals are staying connected to their passions and hobbies, friends, families and communities during COVID-19. We encourage submissions depicting intergenerational connections or celebrating the diverse communities and cultures in our province.
