We are lived by powers we pretend to understand. - W.H. Auden
In these three 2-hour presentations, Warwick artist and writer Daniel Mack talks about fresh creative and spiritual opportunities for people in later life. For Dan, creativity is not really about “art” but about finding ways to keep making our lives meaningful. In what ways can we become regenerative for ourselves, our families and our community? Each meeting includes images, videos, a playful exercise, handouts and discussion.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
