COVID in the House of Old is a scalable traveling exhibit.  It suits public spaces like libraries and community centres.  It could be shown in health care facilities, museums, malls, educational institutions and at fall fairs. We want it to go EVERYWHERE in Canada and we will work with you to make that happen.

The exhibit’s storytelling chairs can be presented together or used in groups of two or three if space is limited.  Elegy for Long Term Care Homes simply needs a wall on which it can be projected. If noise is an issue, then the exhibit audio for Elegy and the chairs can be accessed via QR codes that link to the project website.

With a podcast, powerful audio, and the audio-visual impact of Elegy for Long Term Care Homes, the exhibit is easily adaptable for educational purposes. This website will include a set of COVID in the House of Old teaching resources suited to secondary, post-secondary and adult education settings. See our Teaching Resources page for further information.

This is an accessible exhibit and website. QR codes will link to images with alt texts for all visuals and online transcripts of all audio and allow exhibit visitors to amplify the sound if needed. 

If you are interested in presenting COVID in the House of Old in your community or at your institution please send an email query to Megan Davies:
