This session was developed as a real life experience by one artist faculty member who consulted another leadership faculty member for guidance in developing a creative aging program. Feeling overwhelmed by the preliminary steps normally attributed to a business professional, this team developed an experiential method which allows people to “find” their inner leaders by participating in an event much like a mystery dinner where participants figure out who murdered the mayor. Happily, the competencies beyond creativity are accessible to artists around the globe!
