TimeSlips Creative Storytelling – Creative Trusts - 2015 Programs of Distinction Designee

This program recruits, trains and coordinates undergraduate students to facilitate creative storytelling sessions with elders with cognitive disabilities in care communities affiliated with the Creative Trusts in Milwaukee.

Students commit to a semester of storytelling, but commonly continue for the full year. 

At year’s end, the stories are shared publicly to inspire others to use creative engagement to nurture relationships with people with cognitive disabilities. 

TimeSlips is used in service learning around the country, but the Creative Trusts offers a stable, shared governance of the program that is a national model for collaboration in this important area of need.
