Creative Aging Symposium

January 29, 2020
The third annual virtual Creative Aging Symposium will be held on January 29, 2020. Join us as we celebrate how creativity builds resiliency, how it shapes our sense of self and guides us to more purposeful living. Through the wisdom of those who have spent decades tackling this topic, along with tips for daily practices of self-expression, we will uncover our own potential for imagination and resiliency.

We are excited to announce our full lineup for the virtual 2020 symposium. Our speakers are leading geriatrician and writer Louise Aronson, eco-friendly style icon Debra Rapoport, 40 Women Over 40 dance company director Nancy Cranbourne, storyteller and MiHistoria co-founder Albertina Zarazúa Padilla, and artist and activist Edythe Boone. Our tentative schedule for the 2020 symposium can be found below.

If you are interested in learning more, please check out our 2019 Creative Aging Symposium page for our past schedule, speakers, and a transcript of our 2019 symposium. 

Attendees do not need to identify as creative or artistic to join; all are welcome and in fact, all will benefit from these significant insights!

This event is hosted on web/phone conference by Well Connected, a Community Service of Covia, in collaboration with the Creative Aging San Francisco collective and older adults throughout our programs. Closed captioning and Spanish translations will be provided for the symposium.
