Join us on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, 9am-2pm, for the Aging with Dignity through a Creative Lens Conference. We are bringing together cultural institutions, artists, and community leaders committed to providing the best quality of life for older adults. We will cover topics including resources and best practices in creative aging; the impact of the growth and changing demographics of New York City’s older adult population; and ways that artists and institutions serving the older adult population can work together.
Our keynote speaker will be Cynthia Guyer, Executive Director of Global Dignity, and she will be joined by a panel including an arts educator, senior center program manager, and elder all based in Queens. Our panelists include: Anthonia Akinbola, SU-CASA Artist-in-Residence, Rachel Iroku, SU-CASA Student, and Robin Lombardo, Northeast Regional Director of Music & Memory. If you are a SU-CASA artist, arts educator, or professional looking to provide arts and culture for older adults, help us in our efforts to make life joyful for our elders. Space is limited. RSVP today and spread the word to your colleagues in the field!
Our partners include: Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), AHRC New York City, Rochdale Village Senior Center, Rego Park Green Alliance , and Catherine Fletcher (Writer and SU-CASA Artist-in-Residence). Registration Required. RSVP below
