online - perpetually available
Date: 09-13-2013 thru 09-13-2014
Website: http://www.creativeaging.org/programs-people/ncca-online-artist-training-arts-and-aging

The NCCA Online Artist Training in Arts and Aging, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Michelson Foundation, and MetLife Foundation, is a free online course for teaching artists interested in learning how to lead lifelong learning programs in the arts that engage older people as creators. This self-guided training offers an introduction to philosophy, key concepts, methods, and current research from the field of arts in aging. It introduces readers to the life story-based methods developed by Susan Perlstein and Elders Share the Arts, as well as several other approaches and techniques, offering an array of exercises and case studies that exemplify the work that is happening in the field today.

The training covers topics such as the aging process, the creative potential of older adults, and how to identify community partners in aging, arts, and health-related services. It also provides information on how to adapt instructional techniques for different populations of older adults, from those who live independently to those who are in long term care and those with Alzheimer’s disease and related neurocognitive disorders. Lastly, it provides guidance on how to plan, implement, and evaluate arts programming for older populations. This training is free and designed for each person to complete it at their own pace. We anticipate it will take 12-15 hours to complete. Visit the training now.

Museum Camp

Santa Cruz, CA
Date: 07-30-2014 thru 08-02-2014
Early Registration: 02-28-2014
Website: http://www.santacruzmah.org/museumcamp2014/apply-now/

A three-day event in which small teams of people will develop creative ways to evaluate the work that diverse organizations are doing to transform communities. Our focus is on social impact in communities, and we will encourage teams to look at complex outcomes–like safety, cohesion, compassion, and identity–that are not commonly covered in standard evaluative practices. This is a learning experience with a heavy focus on actual doing throughout the event. In addition to representatives from Fractured Atlas and MAH, we’ll have “camp counselors” from the United Way, WolfBrown, Harder & Co., Animating Democracy, and more on hand to help attendees navigate the conceptual and practical issues associated with measuring what matters.

If you are interested in attending, you can fill out an application through February 28. Space is extremely limited, so the sooner the better. And don’t forget to mention you’re a Fractured Atlas member!
