Time

4:30 PM–6:00 PM EST

The Rootwork | Grounding Community Arts Education Beyond the Pandemic series is an online learning series about how to create programming informed by, and supportive of, the many, varied lived experiences of our communities in the unique context of this moment. 

Social isolation and invisibility due to ageism is a major problem for older adults that has only been exacerbated by Covid-19. The opportunity for older adults to learn, express themselves, and to build and sustain community is more important now than ever. In this session, participants will learn how creative aging arts education programs combat ageism and are a pathway to reconnect older adults to one another, and to their communities in the midst of the pandemic
