June 13, 2016: Come together, right now: Host Emma Breacain talks with Arts Program Coordinator Angelique Hennessy about Fortuna’s Multigenerational Center


So have you heard of this thing called a multigenerational center? Some towns have them, maybe even yours. It’s a community based resource center inviting folks of all ages to come on down for various activities and classes, some grouped by age, some all together. The idea is that it’s free fun for all, with an undercurrent of sharing across age groups that may expand all our horizons. More fun, less “they just don’t get us.” And it may be taking hold!

The folks at the Eel River Valley Multigenerational Center in Fortuna did extensive research and surveying to determine what they should provide. And lo! Some of those things are art therapy, theatre classes, puppet shows and photography contests spearheaded by Program Coordinator Angelique Hennessy.

Hennessy grew up in Los Angeles and developed a strong affinity for Hollywood’s golden era and a good gut for avoiding skeevy casting directors, leading her to work as a model and award winning actress. Now residing in the woolly wilds of Northern California, Hennessy shares her love for performance and art with the kids and adults of the MGC with drama club, summer day camp, and other creative good times.
