CATA Conference at Marylhurst

The Creative Arts Therapies Association will hold their annual conference, featuring keynote speaker Lillian Pitt, at Marylhurst University on November 4, 2012.

This year's conference, The Dance, Art & Song of the Aging, honors the elders of our community by exploring how the creative arts therapies enrich the process of aging.

Keynote speaker is Lillian Pitt, a Native American artist. Born on the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon, she is a descendent of Wasco, Yakama and Warm Springs people. Her works have been exhibited and reviewed regionally, nationally and internationally. Her awards include the 2007 Earle A. Chiles Award for Lifetime Achievement and the 1990 Governor's Award of the Oregon Arts Commission, which declared that she had made "significant contributions to the growth and development of the cultural life of Oregon."

The conference is open to creative arts therapies students and practitioners, gerontologists, social workers, senior care providers, psychologists, medical professionals and others who are interested in how creative arts therapies can contribute to the process of healthy aging.
