This global pandemic continues to impact our most vulnerable communities, and it has seen many sectors suffer through social isolation, disconnection from family and friends, limited staff on site, and restricted access to resources.
Pages for Wisdom was born to inspire our ageing population through the revitalisation of the arts!
We are currently delivering a program that connects budding writers and seasoned authors from around the globe, with older people accessing aged care services Australia wide. Our goal is to promote meaningful and purposeful relationships with our ageing population, by having their voices heard and valued by the wider community. Through this process readers become reviewers, editors and critics. Inviting a new and exciting form of intellectual stimulation for our older people.
In partnership with Meaningful Ageing Australia, we are able to deliver our program at no extra cost to participating aged care providers.
Due to the current success of our program, and the benefits for writers and readers we want to grow into a Non-profit Publishing House, delivering services exclusively to vulnerable communities.
This would allow individuals accessing youth mental health services, home care, residential rehabilitation programs, multicultural groups, disability sector and more to contribute to designing book covers, editing writers work, sharing personal stories, producing artwork for graphic novels and reviewing published work. All books published by Pages for Wisdom will be provided to all participating services at no extra charge.
Our start up funds will contribute towards registration as a Not For Profit (NFP) organisation, website development, and resources to support our volunteers.
We would love to see Pages for Wisdom provide opportunities and purpose for Australia's vulnerable communities, whilst benefiting and supporting artists/ writers from around the world. Please help us expand our reach!
