TimeSlips Spring Festival: Pandemic Engagement 2.0

2021-04-15

This video was a part of the TimeSlips Spring Festival and streamed live on April 15, 2021.

In March of 2020, life as we knew it ceased to exist. As care communities closed their doors to visitors, and caregivers were separated from those for whom they cared, TimeSlips launched a series of virtual resources for our community. But when the TimeSlips community took up the challenge of remote (or safely distanced) engagement, we all learned what physical limitations could bring to creative life. Join a panel conversation led by TimeSlips Founder, Anne Basting, as she engages TimeSlips facilitators from around the world, learning from them how they have kept creativity and joy alive for more than a year, and what they’re planning next.

From August-October 2020, 10 artists worked creatively with 100 elders in Milwaukee county in an effort to reduce the increased isolation caused by COVID-19. These community-based, interdisciplinary artists are each trained in TimeSlips and provide meaningful connections to elders living at home, using a series of Beautiful Questions. The calls all inform a creative project, or "Legacy Gift", that they create for the elders in honor of their conversations. Learn from the artist's experiences and be inspired by the Legacy Gifts they have created.

This webinar was a part of our Creative Care Fall Festival and was recorded on Thursday, October 29, 2020.

As a part of the Wisconsin Creative Communities of Care Project, training 25 nursing homes state-wide in creative care techniques, 5 regional artists were asked to put on a festival with the sites that they were paired with.
