This year, the 2015 NCCA Leadership Exchange aligns with the 2015 White House Conference on Aging and will leverage and expand the impact of creative aging in the national dialogue. 

Building upon learning, dialogue, inquiry, successes, and growth opportunities drawn from the 2014 convening and then working with curatorial teams to shape this year's events, the 2015 Leadership Exchange and Conference presents three tracks, the PRACTICE, the RESEARCH, and the BUSINESS of Creative Aging, each examined through five session lenses: FOUNDATIONS, PLACEMAKING & COMMUNITY, HEALTH & WELLNESS, LIFELONG LEARNING, and INNOVATION LABS. 

Attendees across the spectrum of creativity and aging- from family and professional caregivers to artists, practitioners, researchers, arts insitutions, health and human services agencies, and senior service organizations and administrators-will experience and contribute to dialogue, best-practice, capacity-building, and innovation that will serve the field.
