Webinar registration (It's free!)

Lensing will discuss Connected for Life: Object-based Digital Programming to Foster Active Minds for Senior Living Communities

This project serves a population especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and underserved in outreach and engagement programs. The program goal is to increase participants’ sense of connection and well-being and decrease feelings of isolation through accessible technology. Virtual programming is coordinated and delivered by four world-class museum and library units at the University of Iowa: Stanley Museum of Art, Office of the State ArchaeologistPentacrest Museums, and UI Libraries.

The Connected for Life project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
