Coalition to Host Creative Focus on Aging, Alzheimer’s

The Aging and Mental Health Coalition of Kansas City North will feature Deb Campbell and her team from Arts and AGEing KC, Inc. from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 23.

Arts & AGEing KC is a non-profit organization serving as connector, convener and catalyst for enriching lives of older adults through artful aging. Founder and Executive Director, Campbell will provide an overview of the group’s mission, programming and area initiatives.

With cast members and volunteers, she will share an overview of “Seven Stages, Seven Stories,” an interactive, theatre-inspired project and play that focuses on care giving and living with Alzheimer’s. The original play premiered last summer and is currently performing in different locations throughout the city.

“Seven Stages, Seven Stories” seeks to educate the community about memory loss and care giving. It won local and national attention with its unique approach to raising awareness about dementia and providing a creative way for the voices of caregivers to be heard. Arts & AGEing KC has been invited to present on this topic at the Global Perspectives on Creative Aging, the Annual National Center for Creative Aging Conference in Washington, D.C., in September.

Sponsored by Tri-County Mental Health Services, the free event will be held in room 2005 of the Northland Human Services Building, 3100 NE 83rd Street, Kansas City, MO 64119. Please contact Tonya Rother to RSVP or for further details at (816) 877-0481.
