San Francisco Symposium Provides Training for Communities Looking to Develop Arts Programs That Unite Generations
Date:6/10/2009

WASHINGTON, June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Studies show that older adults are healthier and happier when engaged with others -- especially the youth. The arts in particular can be a wonderful vehicle for uniting generations. Toward that end, the "NCCA MetLife Foundation Creativity Matters: Civic Engagement Symposium," will be held at San Francisco's Tenants and Owners Development Corporation (TODCO)-Coleman House on June 15, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The event is aimed at helping community-based organizations develop intergenerational programs for older people in their areas.

A number of National Endowment for the Arts Best Practice programs will be presented. Tim Carpenter, the Executive Director and Founder of EngAGE and Host/Producer at Experience Talks Radio Show, will be the keynote presenter explaining how his non-profit organization provides programs in lifelong learning, the arts, creativity, community-building and the designing of innovative arts based senior apartment communities in California, such as Burbank Senior Artists Colony.

An afternoon workshop will be led by Susan Perlstein, Founder and Director of Education and Training for the National Center for Creative Aging and the Founder of Elders Share the Arts. The session will focus on the developmental needs of aging individuals and the best ways to design arts programs that bring together the young and old in productive ways.

According to Perlstein, "Intergenerational arts programs bring older and younger people together to learn, create, and promote awareness, acceptance and understanding. In a world where people are continually in a process of defining themselves and their communities, these programs can be an integral part of learning among the young and building a community."

Other presenters include the following:
