Join us as we create an entirely original piece of theatre! We begin by searching for something that sparks the creativity of the group. It could be IMG 1781as simple as a picture, a song, or even a word. Then, through writing, improvisation, movement, and more, we will craft a piece for the stage.

We are looking for painters, musicians, dancers, sculptors, and creatives of all types to help us make something exciting and new. Prior performance experience is not a requirement for this workshop, so we hope you'll bring any and all your talents to A Song We All Sing.

CREATIVE AGING

In 2017, Art Access is partnering with Salt Lake County Aging Services to engage participants in building community, enhancing health and wellness, and pursuing life-long learning opportunities.
As part of this multi-faceted, year-long project, Art Access is offering two writing workshops for adults ages 60+.

RE-IMAGINING YOUR CREATIVE LIFE: A Writing Workshop for Adults 

"Where do I belong?"

"Who am I, now that I'm not who I used to be?"

"What is my purpose?"

These are common questions we all ask as we grow older. Writing opens us up to new possibilities, helps unblock us, and reveals new pathways toward reinvention and discovery—it changes our perspective in ways that we might not have otherwise seen.

Through shared stories, guided writing prompts, readings, journaling, and other creative means, you will uncover your own answers, helping you find purpose and meaning in life's next act. Creative aging means tapping into experience, wisdom, and curiosity to awaken a renewed sense of self and create a fulfilling and engaged life. A goal of the class is to work on a personal essay which will provide an opportunity to share your story. No writing experience is necessary. All writing levels are welcome.

We are offering two sessions of this workshop. For more information, and to register, click on a workshop session below.
