Senior service centers, health sites, museums and libraries recognize that creative programs provide an ideal way for people with cognitive challenges to communicate, and they are looking for artists who can design and deliver effective programs for an aging population. The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the Currier Museum of Art invite you to join us for an Art in Health professional development workshop that explores the power of imagination and creativity with this audience.
We have invited TimeSlips for a one-day training session on the fundamentals of creative engagement and community building. This introductory workshop will teach you new skills to infuse creativity into care relationships and connect with the community in new ways.
TimeSlips is an international leader in creative aging with 20 years of experience and a solid research base. They offer simple tools, training, consulting and inspiration to families, volunteers, students, staff and administrators to build creative communities of care that value, support and engage older adults of all physical and cognitive abilities. TimeSlips has Certified Facilitators in 13 countries and 42 states offering creative engagement programs in care settings, senior centers, memory cafes, museums, libraries, and schools.
The workshop will be led by Joan Williamson, TimeSlips Master Trainer and Training Coordinator.
The workshops will include:
- Two pre-workshop webinars
- Person-centered Dementia Care
- Artists in Community Practice
- Beautiful Questions
- TimeSlips Storytelling Introduction and Demonstration
- Building Creative Communities of Care
