Students and elders with early-stage memory loss connect through art


IAS faculty member Deborah Hathaway has partnered with Edmonds Center for the Arts and Silver Kite Community Arts to offer elders and UW Bothell freshmen the intergenerational course, “Making Art Together.” Through the course, older adults facing early-stage memory loss will work collaboratively with UW Bothell students to share their experiences and transform their stories into short theatrical performances.

UW Bothell students have been learning introductory acting and improvisation skills, as well as creative writing. Both groups will come together in the intergenerational workshops to honor and express their new beginnings through art.    Learn more about this collaboration.
