Event Details

Date: Thursday, October 29th, 2015
Time: 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM

Over the past several months, Glazner and Lifesongs facilitating artists have been working with residents of the Santa Fe Care Center, a skilled nursing community, to create poetry for performance and publication. Lifesongs has also collaborated with Gary Glazner in training Lifesongs facilitating artists and community partners* in APP techniques, and sharing new creative approaches for engaging with members of our community living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. We invite you to experience this accessible, playful, and transformational work.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
