Bringing Joy Through Art

As you would already know, we at SilVR Adventures love a good story that talks of kindness, of artistry and bringing joy to the world, especially to the world of the elderly.

This one is no different.

Benhur Helwend has, for the last 6 weeks, been exploring a new kind of performance at an aged care home on Sydney’s north shore. Depending which way you look at it, either Helwend or his audience members are behind glass. This is window therapy – a way of engaging elderly people with the arts (and a good singalong) while physical distancing restrictions are in place.
