The Wallis Annenberg GenSpace recently hosted second and sixth grade students from Brawerman Elementary School as part of the school’s celebration of Purim.

Students engaged in activities that encouraged intergenerational connection. Second graders used GenSpace’s art room to write and draw images of older adults who are important to them. Sixth grade students created a learning plan to help strengthen older adults’ tech skills to help them stay socially connected and healthy.

The students also got a tour of the age-inclusive space and enjoyed the beautiful art on display and the sunken garden on the third floor’s central atrium. The tour and creative activities are the first of many events that will be held inside GenSpace as part of the center’s ongoing partnership with the Wilshire Boulevard Temple.

GenSpace is getting ready to open its doors to the public. Stay tuned for details and for more information about GenSpace’s current offerings, intergenerational partnerships, and community events visit GenSpace.LA.
