Over recent years it is becoming apparent to post secondary institutions the need to acknowledge and foster a new student base. Enter something called 'third age learning'. Third Age Learning Kwantlen (TALK) provides an ecclectic selection of lectures for those retired and of semi retirement age! While there are college and universities providing full-time, part-time and extension classes, there finally is something for those 50+, who would like to continue their education with one-day lectures and workshops. This model in my opinion is not only brilliant, but necessary, for an aging population to stay stimulated, active, and involved in society. I was more than happy to give a talk and demo on behalf of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra, "The Theremin in Contemporary Art & Culture," contributing and supporting this essential educational model!
