Founder and Director of UCLArts & Healing, Ping Ho discusses how a career in Healing Arts expands the role of the artist, as well as being wonderful medicine to help heal whatever is ailing us in the 50+ creative community.

The Career Center's Creativity Doesn't Age Speaker Series invites guest speakers who have knowledge and commitment to addressing strategies for their community to connect and engage in creative ways during this time of physical distancing, and beyond. Of course, topics highlighted by their speakers are relevant to arts professionals at all ages and stages of their lives and careers.
