A View from DC
May 23, 2010 Leave a comment
I have been in Washington, DC as a board member of National Center for Creative Aging (www.creativeaging.org). Always interesting and exciting to meet with others in the field of arts and aging. Board members are researchers, policy makers, administrators and one other artist. In the plans is a national conference focusing on creative arts and aging in DC in August 2012 at the Kennedy Center. We visited the Center before our Board meeting and I found it thrilling to walk through the Hall of Nations and the Hall of States – all in red, white and gold. How exciting to imagine sharing best practices with others from around the globe that are determined to change the face of aging to the idea “lifelong learning” and in my world “life long learning through the arts.” What an exciting and healthy way to go!
