From the title of a Facebook post by photographer Sandra Ventura, shared at the beginning of the pandemic, we want to reflect together on the loneliness of the elderly and the COVID-19 pandemic. We will have the presence of Sandra Ventura and, to help us reflect, we will have Paula Guimarães, a lawyer, who has worked for 30 years in the area of social economy and aging. Paula Guimarães is also the author of the recent book Sem Mask, a set of tales of hope and misfortune, which exemplify social asymmetries and the way in which crises, such as the pandemic we are experiencing, underline inequalities. The workshop is open to all, namely those who work on issues related to the isolation of older people, health or social professionals, volunteers, caregivers or anyone who is interested and wants to reflect on the theme. It will take place online on February 18th from 6.30 pm to 8 pm. It is free to participate. Any questions are available at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918991537.
