Next Avenue - Integrating Arts into Aging Services

Anne Basting, UWM Theatre Professor, and Founder and CEO of TimeSlips Creative Storytelling, has dedicated her life to improving the lives of older adults through the arts, with a special focus on bringing meaningful engagement to people with memory loss. Basting teaches care partners to connect with loved ones by shifting from the expectation of memory to the freedom of the imagination. Because the baby boomer generation is increasing the population of individuals in the 50 plus group this is a perfect time to make people aware of this initiative and how individuals can use creativity to assist elders in their own lives. On January 31 at 6 pm Milwaukee PBS’ Next Avenue Community Conversations will present a conversation with Anne Basting at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan. This event is open to the public and free to attend.
