Creative approaches are rewriting the traditions of aging, providing vision, connecting institutions and communities, nurturing wellbeing. This event in The Speed Art Museum in Louisville was a two-day deep dive into contemporary aging that celebrates of the potential of us, the aging population.
Creating A New Old explored:
- What is unique about aging today?
- Who are the innovators creating tomorrow’s solutions?
Living longer is changing the way we live, where we live, and how we care for our aging selves and our beloveds. Older populations stretch from the wealthiest to the most fragile in society. Enabling an aging population to live full lives involves sectors and services as diverse as finance, transport, tech, fashion, housing and healthcare.
The event encouraged attendees to be active and engaged participants.
Day 1: Examined the assets already present in Louisville that crossed commerce, community, civic, culture, research, entrepreneurial and health sectors
Day 2: Explored what changes could happen for the opportunities for older people to live fuller lives to be realised.
