For anyone who lives in Cambridge, it’s obvious our home town is transforming at a fast pace. Is Cambridge experiencing a re-birth? A condensed version of his 2018 State of the City address, former Mayor Doug Craig will provide a synopsis of Cambridge from a historical point of view, and capture the city’s growth, direction and hope for the future. He compares the path of development to that of the Renaissance period.
Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL) is a movement that encourages learning and discovery experiences for those in the “third age”—the stage in one’s life beyond full-time employment. By cultivating opportunities for discussion and engaging the expertise of local university professors and community professionals, CTAL supports those who have an intellectual curiosity and an interest in life-long learning. At Idea Exchange, our hope is to foster a self-organized group which would create CTAL programs throughout the year with our support as a venue and promotional vehicle.
