We hope you'll check out The Creative Age: Creativity and Aging in America 2015 National Leadership Exchange and Conference, from our colleagues at the National Center for Creative Aging. The conference will take place in Washington, DC, May 18-21, 2015. The 2015 Leadership Exchange and conference focuses on the practice, research, and business of creative aging and features key national leaders in aging, arts, and health - including presenters from AAMD museums like The Cleveland Museum of Art and MoMA The Museum of Modern Art. Each track ensures that artists, healthcare professionals, researchers, caregivers, and educators will receive innovative information to support their work. Museum programs like tours and art-making for people with Alzheimer's and memory loss are just one part of the creative aging framework!

The museum works with King's College London to deliver short summer school programmes for UK and overseas students who are at various levels of higher education study. Curating the City is a three-week course which introduces 20th century London through fashion, literature, film, oral history and visual culture. Students work with curators each day to explore how our collections can be curated to tell the stories of our ever-changing capital city.You can find out more information and how to apply on our website. http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/summer/programmes/undergraduatesummerschool/modules/kingsculturallondon/Museum-of-London-Curating-the-City.aspx
