In Chokmah we believe in connecting communities through creativity. We believe in the power of art and crafting and how it can empower and inspire individuals. GoSilver is a celebration of ageing and what better ways than using art to signify the beauty of aging as art doesn’t age and in fact gets more appreciated over time – and many times, even beyond the lifespan of the artist who created them. We hope our contribution to this cause via our artwork will encourage everyone to view aging as a rebirth and rejuvenation of life!
I am keenly aware of the negative stereotypes of ageing. For me, I actually struggle with the expiration mindset of ageing – that ageing will reduce exciting opportunities and be limiting in so many ways. Thus, when I was invited to participate, I was very excited to join because this opportunity can inspire me to look inwards to reflect on what it really means to age and to challenge my own perceptions on ageing. I hope that through my final artwork, people (myself, included) can feel and perhaps, begin to embrace the colourful beauty of ageing.
My grandmother took care of me for a big portion of my life. We have a very close relationship, and the love she showed was so important during my formative years. It honestly pains me to see her grow older, but I am learning to see the beauty in aging. I want to appreciate every stage of her life. Thus, I took on this project as a way to celebrate her, and all other elders.

As we move towards becoming an ageing society, it’s time we start paying greater attention to the needs of our senior community. That’s why I am thrilled to participate in this meaningful event and contribute my art for a good cause. Together, let’s celebrate the beauty of ageing and come together to make a positive impact.
