A Forum in Louisville: Creating a New Old

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.
