You’re Invited to Reimagine Aging at the High Museum of Art

 In Your Community

Every May, we celebrate Older Americans Month (OAM), and this year, the theme is “Connect. Create. Contribute.” Personally, I love a good theme, whether it’s for a party, meal, gift, or event, so I’m especially excited to participate in the Reimagine Aging Civic Conversation at the High Museum of Art this OAM, which happens to be very on point. I hope you will join me to:

  • Connect with others from around the metro Atlanta region
  • Create reimagined opinions and ways to talk and feel about aging
  • Contribute your ideas to the conversation about how people of all ages can lead high quality lives throughout their lifetimes in our region.

This will be a great opportunity to have a meaningful conversation about a very important topic and also to explore the High Museum! All ages are welcome, and everyone who signs up and takes part gets free admission and a docent-guided tour. The High is also providing free refreshments and treats for conversation attendees.

BUT space is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis, so be sure to sign up now to attend this Reimagine Aging Civic Conversation at the High Museum using the Civic Dinners platform. The event is from 2:00 to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 7, 2019.

You can also help spread the word by sharing the Civic Dinners link  https://civicdinners.com/ARC-aging/dinners/1202 with your community or by sharing this event on Facebook. I look forward to seeing you there!
