Listener in Residence

Listener-in-Residence was a 10-month intergenerational art project between the Luther Court Senior Care Home and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (AGGV), by artist Libby Oliver and curator Regan Shrumm. Through working with Luther Court, the focus on the project leaned on the examination of isolation, loneliness, and end of life experience and the emotions that came with it.  Oliver held weekly art activity sessions where seniors can express themselves creatively through food and discussion, resulting in portraits of the seniors.

The project took on major adaptations due to the restrictions of COVID-19, as Oliver was no longer able to meet with the seniors of Luther Court in person. Instead, the AGGV called on volunteers to connect with isolated seniors across Vancouver Island. The project resulted in a website as an attempt to showcase some of the experiences and outcomes of the intergenerational project.
