From Intern to Elder: The Long Arc of the Artistic Life

The Brooklyn Commune presents “From Intern to Elder: The Long Arc of the Artistic Life” – public conversation on the life cycle of the artist and a chance for intergenerational dialogue.

The event will begin with Ashton Applewhite’s “This Chair Rocks: How Ageism Warps Our View of Long Life“. Part monologue, part consciousness-raiser, Ashton dispels myth after myth about late life and exposes the ageism that underlies all the hand-wringing. The talk is as funny as it is fierce, and it just might change the way you envision the rest of your life.

Followed by an interactive conversation where we examine together what are the critical inflection points for artists? How does this mesh with “real life”? How might we as a community help each other—in both creative and practical ways? Join us to explore roles elder artists can play with emerging artists and vice versa.

What are the critical inflection points for artists? How does this mesh with “real life”? How might we as a community help each other—in both creative and practical ways?

We’ll close out the conversations with a harvest—looking for insights and new possibilities.
