The Masterpiece Living Lyceum is an invitation-only gathering of Masterpiece Living partners, a place for sharing innovative ideas and non-traditional thought. Aptly named after Aristotle’s Lyceum, which served as early milestones in the development of Western science and philosophy, the Masterpiece Living Lyceum was created to inspire change in the traditional ideas of aging. This annual event focusses on successful aging, and is a motivational, educational, and network-building gathering unlike any business gathering or conference you’ve attended before.
This one is fun and exciting because we interact with like-minded people who are part of the movement to change the experience and perception of aging, and support older adults in maximizing their potential. Presentations are TED-like … concise, entertaining, thought provoking. The Lyceum has been described as “a huge family reunion without the food fight!” Attendees leave with actionable ideas, time-tested best practices, and creative approaches to building environments where successful aging is possible.
In 2016, the eighth annual lyceum was attended by more than 250 people, representing 80 partner organizations throughout the United States.
Past keynote speakers have included:
- Bill Thomas, Owner, Idea Farm & Founder, Eden Alternative
- Connie Goldman, former NPR radio host of All Things Considered and current CEO of Connie Goldman Productions
- Robert Kahn, co-author of the book Successful Aging and Professor Emeritus of the University of Michigan
- Colin Milner, Founder and CEO of the International Council on Active Aging
- Larry Minnix, Former President and CEO of LeadingAge
- Harry Moody, Author and former Director of Academic Affairs for AARP
- James Jackson, Professor at the University of Michigan and network member in The MacArthur Research Network on an Aging Society
- Toni Antonucci, Professor and Associate VP of Social Sciences and Humantities at the University of Michigan
Lyceum 2017 will be held May 16-18, 2017 in Denver, CO at the Westin Denver Downtown Hotel.
