Art History: The Architecture of Zaha Hadid

In this program, we will explore the designs of Iraqi-British architect, Zaha Hadid. Hadid recently passed away, but in her career she was responsible for many innovative and visually stunning architectural works. Hadid’s work was truly international (including structures in Europe, Asia, and the United States) and was a pioneer in her choice of materials and use of space. We will look at her design for the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, and also address how Hadid rose to prominence in such a male-dominated field. Presented by CCAD instructor Ann Shifflet.

Practical Parenting: Understanding adolescents and their emotional development

From the onset of adolescence stems a voyage through astonishing and overwhelming developmental changes. Both parents and teens alike can feel out of control during this journey. Increased understanding of adolescent brain functioning can help navigate teens’ changes in moods, improve relationships and reduce distress experienced both by adolescents seeing life with new eyes and adults looking back on the paths already traveled.

Alive Inside - A Story of Music and Memory

“Sparking Memory”: Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory is a powerful and award winning documentary film about the power of music to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self for seniors with dementia. The film follows Dan Cohen, the founder of Music & Memory, as he discovers the ways music can bring new life and joy to nursing home residents and seniors living at home. Research shows that personalized music can benefit individuals living with middle or late stage Alzheimer’s—and reduce stress for caregivers. Come watch the documentary and listen to a Q&A with Linda Taylor, a certified Music & Memory Advocate, following the film.
