Elders Enriching Communities and Shifting Perceptions through Ibasho

Ibasho is a non-governmental organization based in Washington, DC. Ibasho empowers local elders to create inclusive communities that value elders. Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health Emi Kiyota, founder of Ibasho and environmental gerontologist, Alex Kornhuber, photographer, and Rowena Richie, artist and movement educator, met through the Global Brain Health Institute based at UCSF and created a collaboration to apply what they have learned at GBHI in a global context. They will share their experience of visiting Ibasho sites in Japan, Nepal and the Philippines highlighting the strength and capabilities of elders from cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary perspectives.
