Becoming Our Spaces


July 2021

Co-Presenter at the National Association of State Arts Association’s Creative Aging Institute

Individual teaching artists and community arts organizations are the life force of successful creative aging programs across the country! NASAA's upcoming Creative Aging Institute features a panel discussion with arts administrators and teaching artists from Ping Chong + Company, who will share lessons learned from their recent Artful Storytelling: Our Meaningful Histories theatre project with older adults in New York City's Lower East Side neighborhood. Learn about program planning, delivery, partnership, virtual adjustments, outcomes and impact from the point of view of on-the-ground service providers. 

Please register for all Creative Aging Institute sessions. You will receive a link to join each session via the e-mail address you provide in the registration form. NASAA's inaugural Creative Aging Institute takes place online via Zoom video conference between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 20 and 21, and Tuesday and Wednesday, July 27 and 28, 2021. All state and jurisdictional arts agency and regional arts organization staff and council members are invited to participate, as are state and national partner organizations with an interest in creative aging. NASAA is waiving registration fees for this event, to make information on current trends and best practices in creative aging widely accessible to all.
