PDI The Art of Creative Caregiving

Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 8:00am to 4:00pm
The Kreeger Museum

Join key leaders in the field of creative caregiving throughout the stunning spaces of The Kreeger Museum and gardens. Participants will experience facilitated dialogue, workshops, and site-specific performances designed to train and equip family and professional caregivers, teaching artists and arts administrators, service and caregiving support organizations and professionals with groundbreaking interventions that are changing the face of caregiving.

This day-long event allows participants to examine the concept of flourishing and core assumptions and expectations that are transforming caregiving. Participants will explore the impact of creativity on the role of the caregiver, experience signature museum-based programs designed for caregiving partners, and work with master teaching artists to deepen practice and skills. The day will also feature technological conversation around the inaugural launch of the NCCA Creative Caregiving Initiative and concludes with participants creating a personal action plan that integrates learnings of the day. 

Registration includes transportation, lunch in the spaces of the museum, networking, hands-on demonstrations, tailored museum tours, special site-specific performances, collaborative practice and research dialogues, and exploration of best practice models.
