New Publication on Folklife and Aging

We are excited to announce the release of our new publication, Memory, Art, and Aging: A Resource and Activity Guide! Years in the making, this work aims to inspire elders, promote conversation, and provide actionable activities for elders and the people in their lives. At the heart of this work is the belief that by leveraging folklife, we may provide community-based and culturally appropriate strategies to help elders address some of the challenges they face in their lives and help them flourish.

More information about TAI's work with folklife and aging can be found throughout this website, including an overview of our research, a call and invitation for creative aging summits, and a low-resolution PDF of Memory, Art, and Aging.
