Innovative Crossroads

Throughout the year, Grantmakers in Health (GIH) in association with the National Center for Creative Aging, Grantmakers in the Arts and Grantmakers in Aging, has been exploring the intersection of creativity, health and aging through a series of panels, forums and presentations called Innovative Crossroads. The exploration utilized Dance for PD and TimeSlips, a trail-blazing program for people with dementia designed by Anne Basting, as exemplary case studies to highlight best practices and to bring persistent challenges (research and funding) to the attention of potential funders. GIH’s Colin Pekruhn lucidly articulates the consortium’s findings in this report.
