From Susan Oetgen, NASAA Arts Learning Projects Director
NASAA’s inaugural Creative Aging Institute, presented in partnership with Aroha Philanthropies, takes place online between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 20 and 21, and Tuesday and Wednesday, July 27 and 28, 2021. All state and jurisdictional arts agency and regional arts organization staff and council members are invited to participate, as are state and national partner organizations with an interest in creative aging. NASAA is waiving registration fees for this event, to make information on current trends and best practices in creative aging widely accessible to all.
State and jurisdictional arts agencies are leading the way in providing exciting new opportunities for lifelong learning in the arts through NASAA’s new Leveraging State Investments in Creative Aging grant program. How are these new initiatives being designed to meet the needs of diverse older adults, including rural, BIPOC and lower-income communities? At NASAA’s Creative Aging Institute, hear about exciting program concepts, collaborations and ideas currently on the drawing board from your peers in Arizona, Connecticut and North Carolina. This Flashes of Inspiration session includes lively program overviews plus time for discussion and Q&A with the state panelists.
Please register for all Creative Aging Institute sessions. You will receive a link to join each session via the e-mail address you provide in the registration form.
