In this full day of training, Lifetime Arts will introduce you to the Creative Aging field by providing in-depth information on current research that underpins best practices, as well as the history and background of the field, different areas of practice, and the cross-sector nature of the work.
- You will have an opportunity to analyze and evaluate your ideas about aging, and how that informs your work with older adults.
- This training will introduce you to social engagement techniques that support building community amongst participants, but also intentionally lead to art-making and learning.
- You’ll learn about exemplary organizations that actively engage the lifelong learning model in their older-adult arts programs.
- This training will provide you with the structures and tools you need to plan and implement Creative Aging programs at your library.
This workshop will use experiential activities, PowerPoints, tools, resources, discussion, and active participation; after attending this training, you’ll be well-equipped to share what you learned with your colleagues.
25 seats are available at each location, and registrations will be accepted until seats are filled. If you register and there are no openings, we will add your name to a waiting list.
Attendees will receive mileage reimbursement. Lunch will be provided, at no cost to you.
