Join local arts organizations and Gary Glazner, founder of the internationally acclaimed Alzheimer’s Poetry Project, for a fun-filled morning of creating poetry and song inspired by The Book’s the Thing: Shakespeare from Stage to Page. This event is crafted especially for people with memory illnesses and their care partners, though everyone is welcome to participate. For information, call Tom Leech at 505.476.5096.
In this Community-in-Residence event we explore Shakespeare’s famous quotes in an hour-long session of creativity, playfulness, and learning. We will create a performance inspired by Shakespeare’s work.
Community-in-Residence builds on the concept of an artist-in-residence program, which typically invites artists, poets, musicians, academicians, curators, and all manner of creative people, to enjoy a time and space away from the usual environment and obligations. Sessions will use pieces of artwork to spark thoughts and memories from the participants, who will create music, poetry, stories and, sometimes, artwork of their own.
