PAPERBACK

Haiku Poetry and Art Book

With your support A GOOD LIFE will continue to grow.

Bringing people together to build a community where everyone feels like they belong, promoting a community that shows kindness and respect through arts and culture, coffee and chats, the simple things in life.

About the Project

This Haiku poetry book is a collaborative project that has brought many people together to explore

“What is a good life for people over the age of 50?”

With the support from Office of Ageing Well SA Health, The Australian Centre for Social Innovations, Hutt St Centre, and Vintage Creative Therapies, we are fortunate A Good Life has become a place that brings people together, encouraging kindness and creating a space where older people feel they belong.

Community projects such as The Good Life Project wouldn’t be able to get off the ground without volunteers, our wonderful Theatre buddies Kay, Karolina, Meredith, Yimin and Alyce are fundamental to the project’s success. A special thanks to Alyce and Yimin for bringing an intergenerational aspect to the project, young people bring new mindsets and knowledge having great energy for a good life.

 

About the Hutt St Centre

Hutt St Centre is a place of connection and support, where people facing homelessness are empowered to rebuild their lives, rediscover their identities and reconnect with those who love them.

We walk alongside people on their journey toward homefulness—a word we use to describe the feeling of safety, control and confidence that comes with having a place to call home.

When people walk through our doors we help fulfil their immediate needs, like a shower, a meal, and a charged phone, while our 20+ visiting services provide support ranging from medical check-ups to financial counselling.

And with a focus on the future, we connect people with housing, education and employment opportunities to build the skills and confidence to change their circumstances for good.
