June 15 2011 is World Elder Financial Abuse Awareness Day. It is a fitting occasion for the inaugural screening of the video, How to Spot A Wolf - Recognizing and Preventing Elder Financial Abuse.
The video is a community video project produced and directed by The Elder Financial Abuse Dialogue Group (North Shore Neighbouhood House), and Lois Klassen.
The video formed part of my creative research project on dialogical art forms and was largely funded by the SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship as well as the Emily Carr University President's Research Fund and many in-kind supporters (Emily Carr University, North Shore Neighbouhood House at John Braithwaite Community Centre, Finding Home™ Initiative, VIVO Media Arts Centre, and more).
Join us for the launch at John Braithwaite Community Centre in North Vancouver on Wednesday, June 15 at 1pm. Elder Financial Abuse Awareness Day at JBCC - Flyer
I am also planning to screen this video along with Word Finding in or around Emily Carr University near the end of the summer or in fall. These two videos were produced in tandem as alternate approaches to the community video process. Stay tuned for details on the screening and discussion of both works.
