Wendy Allen (she/her) has been a participant in Atwater Library’s projects in digital literacy for seniors using video as a way to explore, reflect, learn and create.   Projects have ranged from digitalizing a chapter of her own story to the Promenade Parlante, a place-based research creation project in Shaughnessy Village (a partnership with Concordia and the Atwater Library).

At COHDS she used oral history as an approach to present portraits of the people at the heart of international university development projects.
