The third annual Creative Aging Conference will build upon our work done in the past two Creative Aging workshops.
Our culture is coming to accept the vital relationship between creative expression and aging well. The quality of life for seniors – and then of course, their loved ones – is significantly enhanced when our seniors are involved in intentional creative expression.
The demand in our region is exploding for stARTSomething’s artist residencies lead by trained, professional artists. The June 23rd conference will reinforce what we learned about the benefits of creative involvement for seniors and learn from the experiences of teaching artists in creative aging residencies around the state.
Teaching artist Margot Greenlee will return and “dance” us through the physical, social, and emotional benefits of age-appropriate movement and best practices. As always, the Creative Aging conference will be interactive – come prepared to participate, learn and have fun; you will leave refreshed and energized.
