The Typewriter Project (2018 & 2019)

A place, time, tools, materials and guidance provided to encourage inter-generational conversation and positive interaction, and the sharing of wisdom to reveal new perspectives, rediscover old skills, and consider the idea that one-to-one communication without a glowing screen is not only possible, it is valuable and essential.
