Winter session of online presentations features films, discussions, and more from Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UMass Boston

Living through the last few years of a global pandemic has taught us all about courage, resilience, and perseverance. So the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) team at UMass Boston chose the theme “Truth Be Told: True Stories of Resilience” for its upcoming winter film series. The seven weekly online film showings will be followed by Zoom discussion sessions. 

OLLI is offering the film series and other online opportunities in January and February 2023 as part of its Winter Programs session. The programs are free to OLLI members and prospective members on a first-come, first-served basis (a few programs have associated costs, noted in the descriptions). Virtual walking tours include the beloved Boston Common, Clam Point in Dorchester, and Boston’s Historic Theatre District.

Members can register for the programs at the OLLI registration site. Nonmembers can write to the OLLI office with the titles of the programs you’d like to attend and the staff will register you. The programs will be held via Zoom, with Zoom links sent out a day prior to each event.
