I Won’t Grow Up
I Won’t Grow Up is a community building arts project that reimagines the story of Peter Pan in collaboration with elders, staff, family, and volunteers in long-term care settings.
TimeSlips collaborated with 12 rural Signature HealthCARE nursing homes across the state of Kentucky. A year of training and creative exploration culminated in three, professionally produced, original plays in three nursing homes in spring 2019, Morgantown Care and Rehab (Morgantown, KY) (March 23-26); Lee County Care and Rehab (Beattyville, KY) (May 11-14); and SHC at Sunrise Manor (Hodgenville, KY) (June 1-4).
The I Won’t Grow Up project is funded by a Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Grant through the Kentucky Office of Inspector General and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS); and a National Endowment for the Arts ArtWorks grant.
A series of short videos tells the story of the evolution of the collaboration with Signature HealthCARE.
