2015 ARIZONA AGE-FRIENDLY NETWORK CONFERENCE - "GOING PLACES"
On May 6, 2015, 250 guests attended the 2015 Arizona Age-Friendly Network Conference - “Going Places.” The conference was held at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus in Scottsdale and featured the second annual Community Competition, a curated intergenerational art show, musical performances, workshops in Transportation, Intergenerational Programming, Data and Technology, and Communities in Action, and a Virtual Dementia tour.
Communities, Artists Celebrated for Bringing Generations Together
Three awards were conferred at the Going Places Conference to celebrate innovative ways older adults are connecting to people of all ages. The awards were part of the 2015 Arizona Age-Friendly Community Competition and the 2015 Intergenerational Art Show. Both competitions and the conference were conducted through the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the Arizona Age-Friendly Network, a statewide effort to connect older adults to all generations.

Many thanks to the Western Arizona Council of Governments for offering Virtual Dementia tours throughout the day.
