Apr 13, 2015

The upcoming 2015 National Center for Creative Aging Leadership Exchange (May 19-20, Washington, DC) aligns with the 2015 White House Conference on Aging and will leverage and expand the impact of creative aging in the national dialogue. The Guild is pleased, this year, to represent the interests of our members in this important exchange.
 
Attendees across the spectrum of creativity and aging- from family and professional caregivers to artists, practitioners, researchers, arts institutions, health and human services agencies, and senior service organizations and administrators-will experience and contribute to dialogue, best-practice, capacity-building, and innovation that will serve the field.
 
Guild Director of Program and Membership Strategy, Heather Ikemire, will join Julie Ellis, director of Hollin Hall Senior Center, and Nancy Hankin, founder and executive director of the Intergenerational Center at Temple University, as panelist in the session, Life-Long Learning – A Road Less Traveled: Collaborating Across Cultures and Generations. Panelists will examine culturally specific programs and intergenerational dynamics in relation to life-long learning practices. This session will also investigate the role of older adults as “keepers of culture.”
