Listen to Everyone Workshop
April 29 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
Calling all professional caregivers, volunteers, and family members! Join us for a free workshop that will give you the resources and skills to use a brand-new program designed to spark conversations in adult homes. We’ll provide all the materials you need to bring the program to your workplace or to a loved one.
The Cooperstown Graduate Program (CGP) and Woodside Hall, a NYS Certified Adult Home, have partnered to launch an exciting new program using oral histories from Cooperstown residents, past and present. The stories are themed around topics with importance in the world today, such as women’s rights, the environment, education, and citizenship. Volunteers play the stories, then talk with residents about the memories and feelings they evoke. This project was made possible by a Vision grant from Humanities NY.
