Storytelling Across Generations: A Virtual and Phone-Based Oral History Project
April 19-June 2, 2021
Orientation: Monday, April 19 | 10-11AM
Intergenerational Sessions: Mondays, April 26-May 17 | 11AM-12PM
Final celebration: Wednesday, June 2 | 11AM-12PM
Admission: FREE with Registration
Capacity: 10 couples (each including one person living with memory loss)
Individuals living with memory loss and caregivers are invited to participate in this FREE intergenerational program, in partnership with the University of Washington Bothell (UWB) and SilverKite Community Arts! Taking place over six one-hour sessions on the phone and/or Zoom, UWB students will interview elders in an oral history project. These interviews — based on your stories, memories, and personal experiences — will inspire end-of-term performances by students, to be shared virtually during a final celebration of all participants.
Storytelling across Generations is designed for pairs of participants including a person living with memory loss and caregiver/care partner. We welcome adults at all stages of their dementia journey, though this program will be most accessible and engaging for those with early stage memory loss (ESML). Join us!
Many of us have been there for parents and other loved ones as they have grown older. It is often through these experiences that we begin to recognize the wisdom of planning ahead for our own health, legal and financial concerns, as well as housing considerations.
The Power of Planning is a 45-minute, interactive seminar where you can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a Certified Care Manager and an Elder Law Attorney. These experienced advisors will help you prepare for both the predictable as well as the what if’s of aging.
Registration not required.
Ages 55 and older.
Facilitated by Bobbi Kidder.
Seniors, an hour of conversation, play and connection!

“Your presence is your gift” speaks to the intangibles we each bring to our lives. What gifts do you want to bring more fully into the future?
