What role can art and creativity play in later life? How can we expand opportunities for older adults to engage with art, and who can we look to for inspiration? Join colleagues from museums, arts centers, aging-services organizations, senior residences, and beyond for an informative, engaging, and inspiring day of conversation about how engaging with art can foster learning, creativity, and meaningful social connections for older adults and across generations. Speakers and facilitators include Pearl Cleage, Distinguished Artist in Residence at the Alliance Theater; Kay Sibetta, Associate State Director, Community Outreach, AARP Georgia; Dr. Ali John Zarrabi, Assistant Professor, Division of Palliative Medicine, Emory Healthcare; as well as staff from the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, The Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Creative Spark in San Francisco, and the High Museum of Art, among others.
The Convening on Arts and Aging is intended for colleagues working in arts settings or for people who work with older adults through community-based organizations and senior residences. Registration is $95 and includes a full day program followed by a wine reception.
There are a limited number of scholarships available to cover the cost of registration. To inquire about a scholarship or for general inquiries about the Convening, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-733-5034.
