This exciting workshop will feature two sessions. In the first, let the experts help you explore some of the practical aspects of creative arts programming for older adult, such as planning, funding and actually implementing. You will have to opportunity to ask questions of a panel of arts, humanities and local professionals, who will share information about some of the opportunities available that provide professional arts programming and/or funding.

After lunch, professional teaching artists experienced working with older adults will lead you in a hands-on exploration of bringing creativity to aging services. You will also engage in a hands-on sensitivity learning activity. You will gain some insight into what it may be like to have diminished senses as a result of the natural aging process.
