It’s a Poetry Party!
Join in the fun when poet Gary Glazner, internationally recognized leader in creative aging and participatory arts, gets the party going with interactive performances of well-loved classic poems, humor, movement, and music. Art will be our inspiration!
Gary Glazner is the founder and Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project (APP). The National Endowment for the Arts listed the APP as a “best practice,” and NBC’s “Today” show, PBS NewsHour, and NPR’s “All Things Considered” have featured segments on Glazner’s work. Glazner is the author of Dementia Arts: Celebrating Creativity in Elder Care, Health Professionals Press 2014. The APP has provided programming in 36 states and internationally in Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Poland, South Korea and Turkey, and we are very excited to have Gary join us at MOWA!
