The project aims to increase the representation of senior citizens in contemporary performing arts communities in Visegrad countries. The collaboration of a Czech and a Polish cultural center and a Hungarian foundation creates programs for seniors and thus makes the cultural offering of the regions better fit the population. 

The central element of the project is a 14-week program where local artists co-create with seniors. It runs parallely in the three countries in Olomouc, Budapest and Krakow, and includes artistic coaching, creation and sharing of experiences. The program participants experience artistic creation through various disciplines such as contemporary dance, acting, music, voice and experimental practices, which can contribute to well-being and personal fulfilment. In addition, having a more diverse community around each organization fosters intergenerational dialogue and understanding.
