Thriving Better Together: Creative Aging & Resilience | This is a three-part series about creative aging programs, how social isolation impacts elders, and the advocacy needed to address ageism and other forms of oppression within the arts and culture sector. Investing in strong, creative, resilient communities of care for our elders is, likewise, an act of care for all current and future generations.
Collective advocacy for creative aging work must come from our deep connection with each other and understanding of our shared experience. We are all aging. Join an intimate discussion between Tiffany Jackson, Director of Education at Bishop Arts Theatre Center in Dallas, and Aljosie Aldrich Harding, an elder of the Civil Rights Movement, social justice advocate, and spiritual guide who currently serves on the National Council of Elders. Together, they will provide insights into the importance of advocacy work in cultivating creative aging and community wellness throughout one’s life.
