Being interviewed for Experience Talks, to be aired on KPFK on Sept. 27. Assistant producer John Semper, Jr. in background
L.A.'s Great Big Freeway was all that, but Ross successfully chauffered me to North Hollywood to the NoHo Senior Arts Colony. What a cool place that is. Imagine if you feel like going to a play and all you had to do was walk downstairs and settle into a theater with your popcorn and watch a professional company perform. Thatís what residents of NoHo enjoy, as well as the chance to do art themselves in onsite studios.
What I love about the senior arts colony approach is that it turns our cultural idea of aging on its headórather than seeing growing old as a time of decline and loss, the arts colony approach views this stage as a time to explore, take risks, be creative.
A roomful of residents came to be the audience as radio producer Cynthia Friedlob interviewed me for the program Experience Talks, aired on Pacifica station KPFK. The show is produced by EngAGE, which promotes high quality arts programming for older adults.
