Lifesongs concerts are the culmination of months of creative collaboration between people of different ages, genders, race and life experiences, fostering communities of care and restoring dignity through stories and connection. The performances celebrate the voices of our elders, the insights gained at end-of-life, and the extraordinary alchemy of intergenerational creative exchange.

Since its beginnings in 2007, Lifesongs’ multigenerational collaborations have included collaborations with elderly veterans. Lifesongs is a celebration of the human journey through music, poetry, dance, and story. An intergenerational arts project, Lifesongs provides opportunities for meaningful and creative exchange between people of different ages, genders, race and life experiences, fostering communities of care and restoring dignity through stories and connection. Through intergenerational collaboration, transformative storytelling, and community capacity building, Lifesongs focuses on systemic and sustainable change. Our 2018 concert is focused on sharing and lifting ​the stories of elder veterans in our community.

To continue the important work of lifting veteran voices, Lifesongs will continue to work with veterans in 2019, seeking to engage with those who were active in both current and past conflicts and continue the alchemy of intergenerational creative exchange among New Mexico’s veteran community. Help us reach our goal of $10,000 by contributing by October 26th and join us at the 2018 Lifesongs concert Homecoming: Songs and Stories of Service. Thank you for joining us in our commitment to awakening and sustaining our collective capacity for transformational growth and learning at all stages of our lives.
