Able Artists presents "Arts & Long Term Care in Kingston"

Feb 28, 2017 | Able Artists, H'art Events - 2017, HAAP, Seniors

On March 12, 2017, H’art Centre will present an information-sharing workshop called Arts & Long-Term Care in Kingston as part of our ongoing Able Artists series. Long-term care administrators, arts organization administrators, arts instructors, educators, post-secondary field placement supervisors, volunteer professionals, and seniors with disabilities are being invited to attend.

In this session, local inclusive arts instructors will share information about their recent experiences delivering art classes designed for seniors with disabilities. Presenters will include:

  • Amy Booth, physiotherapist, and dancer
  • Erika Olson, visual artist instructor
  • Jackie Mills, Founder of Sit N’ Dance

Then, attendees will take part in a session facilitated by artists Sasha French and Amy Booth designed to gather insights that will improve the availability, affordability and accessibility of inclusive arts to seniors in long-term care across Kingston.

A light breakfast will be served to invited participants.

For more information or to request an invitation, contact 613-545-1392.

As a not-for-profit charitable arts organization that serves people with disability and those facing barriers to participation in the arts, H’art Centre is committed to inspiring the next generation of inclusive arts facilitators through professional development workshops and our Able Artists series.

We gratefully acknowledge the City of Kingston Arts Fund’s support of this presentation.
