Memory, creativity, and aging will be explored from multidisciplinary perspectives in the Frye’s annual Creative Aging conference. A preview of presenters include keynote speaker Charles Fernyhough, PhD, British psychologist and award-winning author of Pieces of Light: How the New Science of Memory Illuminates the Stories We Tell About Our Pasts; visual artist and educator Gretchen Frances Bennett; Thomas Grabowski, MD, Director, University of Washington Memory and Brain Wellness Center; and Kevin Iega Jeff, choreographer, dance educator, and co-founder of Deeply Rooted Dance Theatre (Chicago).

New for 2019! The Frye is partnering with Port Townsend-based arts and education organization Centrum to bring the conference to historic Fort Worden State Park. Friday’s program will repeat on Saturday at this second location:
