Artists involved with The Remember Project are now offering distance-learning workshops for professionals and volunteers in the field of aging.
There is no registration fee, thanks to a generous grant from the Mardag Foundation. Applications are due Jan. 30. Priority focus are the regions affiliated with the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging and the Dancing Sky Area Agency on Aging, which cover the 28 northernmost counties in Minnesota.
The Arts & Aging Workshops have been created within a framework of the Greater Minnesota Arts & Aging Partnership, an idea that comes from strengthening the relationships and connections between artists and those who work or volunteer in the field of aging. The workshops use the art forms of theatre, music, movement, storytelling and visual art for exploratory learning and conversation. Participants will join a cohort of learners who work together for about five months and experience six learning modules. Each module includes independent pre-work guided by pre-recorded videos, a virtual meeting to discuss pre-work and learn about successful arts partnerships, and a reflection activity to wrap up the module.
