Our long-standing and ongoing

 collaborative workshops and performances in Wisconsin with St. Mary’s Care Center and Verona High School’s 18-21 year old Transition Program for youth with disabilities is one of the most rewarding projects we have worked on, for participants, audiences, and facilitators alike. Through this work we guide residents of a skilled nursing facility and youth with disabilities through the process of creating, rehearsing, and performing a multi-media play focusing on themes of affirmation and connection. This project showcases the multi-faceted benefits of creative aging, for there is so much we all can learn from people who are too often ignored. Giving them the chance to explore and share their creativity enriches their lives and enhances the overall cultural environment of the community.
