Send out your positive vibes toward my selection to attend this TRAINING INSTITUTE...
We are delighted to announce our seventh grant award from the National Endowment for the Arts that will help fund The Creative Center at University Settlement Training Institute for Artists and Administrators in Creative Aging, March 26-31, 2017.
This Institute will focus on the growing field of creative aging as well as arts in healthcare and will provide artists, as well as arts,hospital, senior center and nursing home administrators both a theoretical and didactic approach to implementing, sustaining and evaluating high quality arts programming in a variety of settings serving older adults, from senior centers to long term residential settings for the frail elderly. Presentations and workshops by national and local leaders in the field, combined with site visits to museums, galleries and "best practice" programs, will enable accepted trainees to raise the bar on arts engagement across the aging spectrum.
Support for The Creative Center at University Settlement Training Institute for Artists and Administrators in Creative Aging comes from the National Endowment for the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
