The Slow Flash Mob is a project created for Make Something Edmonton, an initiative set up by Mayor Stephen Mandel to address Edmonton’s image and reputation, by asking residents to answer the question, “Why do you live in Edmonton?” Sage is involved in one of the committees that is working on Make Something Edmonton.
Take a couple of minutes to check out the website – there are some fantastic projects being submitted by Edmontonians, including the Slow Flash Mob!
“My name is Amy Shostak, and I am an artist from Edmonton. In May 2012, I took a trip to China and was inspired by the park life there. Parks were vibrant places, where people of all ages intermingled and learned from one another. When I returned home, I thought about Edmonton's often-empty parks, and my Dido (grandfather) who is 83 and a very active senior citizen.”
Join Amy, Creative Age Edmonton, Rapid Fire Theatre, Make Something Edmonton, and hundreds of Edmonton seniors and families for:
