In January, February, and March of 2022, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgetown’s Aging & Health Program, the Kennedy Center Office of Accessibility and VSA, and Mather hosted virtual Creative Aging Innovation Forums (CAIF), which were attended by thought leaders from arts organizations, senior living, academic institutions, and government/policy and philanthropic organizations. Their vision for these sessions was to utilize the pandemic’s disruptive force as an opportunity for interdisciplinary innovation in Creative Aging.
The outcome of forums is 16 idea abstracts, included in this white paper. These abstracts represent the enormous potential for interdisciplinary creative problem-solving in four areas: research and innovation, systems-level change, infrastructure and spaces, and intergenerational lifelong learning.
