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.  Please click here to read more about the event and award recipients.

Sincere appreciation is extended to the speakers, musicians, resource table hosts, volunteers, staff, and everyone who shared in this collaborative effort for an intergenerational conference. Many thanks to the Western Arizona Council of Governments for offering Virtual Dementia tours throughout the day. Workshop presentations and supportive documents from the conference can be found on the 2015 Going Places page

The 2015 Arizona Age-Friendly Conference was sponsored by Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Grantmakers in Aging, the Pfizer Foundation and City of Phoenix and is co-hosted by the Arizona Age-Friendly Network and MAG Transportation Ambassador Program.  

We would also like to express our gratitude the following community partners for their support in making these efforts possible: AARP, Arizona Commission on the Arts, Arizona Department of Economic Security, Arizona Department of Health Services, and the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging.
