Hello! I came across an upcoming free virtual event on tools for "creative aging"on December 6th and thought I'd share!

I've included the link to registration and description below, would love to hear your thoughts!

Event Description:

How can art and garden design help us achieve a renewed sense of wellbeing? How can solutions for those living with memory loss and dementia extend to all of us? How might we all benefit from the tonic of nature, even when we cannot leave our homes?

Join the Frye Art Museum, the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center, and Microsoft in a gathering focused on the power of present-moment awareness, creativity, and sensory experiences with nature. During this panel discussion and Q&A, we will explore the spiritual, emotional, physical, and neurological effects of nature through practical examples of programs developed for those with memory loss, dementia, and their care partners. We’ll explore how the principles of inclusive design were applied in the development of these programs and provide suggestions for you to leverage nature as an antidote to the perils of everyday life during a pandemic.
