Growing Wiser

Growing Wiser is a group experience for curious adults who wish to learn, share, and celebrate life with others in a similar stage of their lives. These workshops aim to create a space for you to learn in a non-conventional format. Using creative and fun approaches to interact with one another, we will dig into a different topic each week by using scholar lectures, research-based articles, and mixed media. Our priority is to make sure you foster lifelong learning, cultivate joy and make new friendships. Join us any Tuesday as we approach a different topic every week.
