c) Online pilot intergenerational artwork program with the Hellenic Children’s Museum;
d) Intergenerational festival in collaboration with geriatric associations;
e) Lobbying regarding ageing inequalities internationally.

Museum Training Program for Seniors 

 

The grant regards the organization of a museum training seminar for persons aged 65+ in order for these seniors to subsequently act as volunteer guides at the Hellenic Children’s Museum. The seminar will entail 10 weeks of theoretical training where seniors will learn about the museum and how the museum can act as a tool for education, culture, and skills development. Each participant will also receive 12 weeks of practical training, for the exhibits of the Hellenic Children’s Museum during its hours of operation to the public (either on weekends with families or during school visits during the week). At first the seniors will observe the professional guides of the educational department of the Museum, and then, they will transition to becoming volunteer guides themselves. The guides at the museum give children a leading role and use the artifacts of the collections of the Hellenic Children’s Museum as triggers for the development of skills and the discovery of knowledge. After the training program finishes, the goal is for the seniors to stay on at the Museum as permanent volunteer guides.
