Stories of Memory, Art, & Aging with Dr. Jon Kay
From Amanda Lueck
Dr. Jon Kay and Ph.D. Candidate Lydia Campbell-Maher discuss Dr. Kay's research for his book "The Expressive Lives of Elders" and his findings on "how traditional arts keep us from being isolated and alone." Dr. Kay shares how his career as a folklorist led him to research creative aging and folkloristic gerontology. They also discuss Traditional Arts Indiana's recent publication, "Memory, Art, and Aging: A Resource & Activity Guide," and stories of the people they worked with to produce this guide.
