What does care mean, and how can it impact our lives and communities this fall?

Calling all artists, health care professionals, caregivers and everyone interested in the intersection of arts and healthcare. Leaders and artists in the field will discuss how to stay connected in the time of COVID-19, and participants will leave with an inspired action plan for creative community engagement for both 1:1 and group work that can take place in person or remotely using the TimeSlips methodology.
The focus of day one is the WHY and HOW of this work. In the time of COVID19 why is creative engagement essential? And HOW can the TimeSlips methodology, including the improvisational practice of "Yes, and..." and Creative Asset Mapping can help you engage your community in new ways.
Day two will bring us into artist demonstrations of remote engagement for meaningful connection in the face of continued physical distancing. You will have time to brainstorm project ideas and gain feedback from experts in the field on ACTIONABLE PLANS to use in your work.
TimeSlips is grateful to the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Bader Philanthropies for their support of the Creative Care Institute.

Dr. Basting shares stories of how shifting away from the expectation of memory toward the freedom of imagination opens expression and mean-ingful relationship with people with dementia, their care partners, and care systems themselves. Infusing creativity into care brings hope and meaning back within reach– which is crucial for quality of life for both people living with dementia and for their care partners.
Anne Basting, Angie McAllister, and participants in the I Won’t Grow Up Project share stories of this remarkable experience. August 6th / Aug 6th (one day). Click here to learn more.
We live long, let’s start living well.
Creating A New Old invites you to the Speed Art Museum in Louisville for a two-day deep dive into contemporary aging.
An inspiring celebration of the potential of us, the aging population. What is unique about aging today? Who are the innovators creating tomorrow’s solutions and how?
Living longer is changing the way we live, where we live, and how we care for our aging selves and our beloveds. Older populations include the wealthiest and most fragile in society. Change is crossing sectors from finance to transport, tech to fashion, housing to healthcare.
Creative approaches are rewriting the traditions of aging, providing vision, connecting institutions and communities, nurturing wellbeing.
Come to see where we all might be going on this one great big adventure.
