The Stories We Share as We Age

The simple act of sharing a story can connect and inspire us, but it can become more meaningful when it takes place between generations. Wisdom, humor, and perspective are all things that older adults can bring to our creative spaces. How can we share that creative spirit?

Bader Philanthropies and the Milwaukee Jewish Federation invite you to join us for a cross-Atlantic dialogue on ways of using creativity and storytelling to enhance our understanding of what it means to grow old with grace.

We’ll be joined by Tamar Kay and Yair Agmon, a filmmaking duo from Israel who are collaborating on Senior Moments, a public television series that captures first-person stories from older adults who represent Israel’s religious and cultural mosaic. Funny and poignant, the video vignettes share their everyday lives and their life perspectives with the wider society.

For a local viewpoint, we’ll be joined by Riverwest’s own Woodland Pattern, a hub for the literary arts that has linked with seasoned writers, poets, and visual artists from a diversity of life experiences and viewpoints. Woodland Pattern seeks to bring their voices to wider Wisconsin community, including the younger generation.

Join us for an engaging, entertaining, and enlightening look at creativity and cross-cultural understanding at any age.
