Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22, 2019

This week-long training, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, will focus on the role of the arts in healthcare and creative aging, providing theoretical and didactic approaches to implementing and sustaining high-quality arts programming in a variety of settings serving people living with illness and older adults across the aging spectrum. Artists, as well as arts, nursing home and hospital administrators will be given everything they need to create “best practice” arts programming in community and senior centers, hospital, healthcare, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, along with rehabilitation, palliative and hospice settings. Founded in 1994, The Creative Center at University Settlement has been training artists and administrators from across the US since 2002 to replicate our model in a variety of healthcare settings using the unique training program featured in our book,
