Lately doing the work has taken precedence over writing about it. I’ve the briefest of gaps before a really busy week where I’ll give presentations at The Creative Age, NCCA’s National Leadership Exchange and Conference in Washington DC and Long Live Arts in The Hague. The DC one is especially exciting as it aligns with the 2015 White House Conference on Aging. I’m really looking forward to hearing and traveling with fellow speakers and want to give a big thank you to all who have made it possible.
The presentation is about How Might Art Shape the World In Which We Grow Old. As usual I’ve aimed high.
Its given me a chance to reflect on what I’ve been learning from the artists I’ve worked with, both those who are practicing daily and those who bring a lifetimes experience to a first time encounter with a creative process. It’s a chance to articulate why CAI is developing opportunities through the production of cultural events where valuable encounter and exchange of ideas about creative aging can take place.
In it I refer to the work of a number of companies. As I’ve only time to show limited amounts of their work I’m going to use the next few blogs to feature them.
I hope the conferences will be as stimulating as the Creating A New Old event developed through Bealtaine in 2012 and I’m looking forward to meeting many of the people brought there.
