We’re All in This Together

2020/2021

We're All In This Together Project

"We're All In This Together” is a web series and community collaboration between The English Language Arts Network (ELAN) and Seniors Action Quebec, with a mission to connect with and inspire isolated, English speaking seniors across Quebec during the pandemic.

The project consisted of creating a 22-episode web series for seniors to help them battle isolation and fear during these difficult times. The bi-weekly episodes were directed by Montreal-based, award-winning, filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart. Each episode featured entertainment, activities and conversations designed to reach out to those in need of support and remind them that we are, indeed, all in this together. Even if you aren’t a senior but you know one, watch the series together! 

As part of the project, ELAN and SAQ were able to distribute Ipads to English-speaking community organizations and community groups who work either directly with seniors or have educational programs for seniors. To help seniors improve their digital literacy and use of technology, seven instructional videos will be produced by Monica Escobedo. Monica will walk seniors through how to use iPads, various apps and how to navigate social media and the internet safely.
