Thank you to everyone who joined us for the third annual virtual Creative Aging Symposium on January 29, 2020. We celebrated 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 started the process of uncovering our own potential for imagination and resiliency.

Thank you to everyone who joined us! The transcript of the symposium can be downloaded here and the videos of the symposium can be accessed through the form at the top of this page. 

Our speakers for the 2020 Creative Aging Symposium were 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. 

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.
