The Case for Creative Aging

Presenter: Damon McLeese, Executive Director Access Gallery

As the Boomer generation is set to retire, the floodgates of older Americans is poised to become a tidal wave. People are living longer and are expecting to continue to be engaged and active. In the past few years, there has been considerable interest in, and activity around, the intersections of art and aging, and arts and healing. Study after study has shown that regular participation in the arts by older adults helps to minimize age- related cognitive and physical decline and contributes to maintaining physical, intellectual and emotional health.

Join us for an exploration of different approaches to engage people in meaningful creative expression throughout their lives. We will discuss how to make our programming age and dementia friendly from how we set up our physical space to how we engage with people normal age related experiences and those with dementia.
