Belmont House - Homes for the Aged - Toronto, Canada


Everyday, residents at Belmont House challenge our perception of aging. Come see their unique work and the rich life stories that inspire them.

For Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, participating resident/artists have collaborated to produce a showcase of personally significant and contemporary artwork across various mediums. The artists of Belmont House hope to play a leadership role by inspiring others to follow in their path and challenge the perception of aging.

Residents (most between the ages of 85-95 years) continue to lead rich and fulfilling lives. Under the guidance of Belmont House's unique Art Therapy program, many residents are able to express their creativity and talent.

A group of Belmont House residents (most over 85 years old) were each asked to portray one personal memory through a unique medium.
