Our partnership with Active Minds was a key element of the success of the Denver Silent Film Festival. They connected us with the senior population in the Denver area in ways we could not have done without their help. – Montine Hansl, Executive Director, Denver Silent Film Festival

The instructor is one of the most learned and vivid lecturers I have ever heard. His lecture was a gem, and the question period was most illuminating. – Professor Diana Wilson

Active Minds and History Colorado share a common goal of providing rich learning experiences for the community. History Colorado's vision is to share relevant, meaningful history that gives context to the present, and Active Minds has been an incredible partner in this endeavor. Active Minds programs are always high quality and engaging and their partnership with us increases our connection to senior and adult lifelong learners throughout the Denver area and beyond. – JJ Rutherford, Director of Education, History Colorado

The Tattered Cover Book Store has partnered with Active Minds to provide programs for customers and the community for almost a decade.  We do this because we value how Active Minds is able to provide consistent, high quality programming on a wide variety of topics that matter to people.  Because they have such an extensive fan base, the programs consistently draw large crowds to our stores, many of whom have never been to Tattered Cover before.  For us, hosting Active Minds is good for our business and good for the community. – Heather Duncan, Director of Marketing

I want to schedule another presentation with you! Our library patrons and staff have been thoroughly impressed and pleased with your presentations in the past and we would like to start out next year with another Active Minds presentation. Thanks! – Anthony LaCombe, Senior Librarian, Bemis Public Library (Littleton)

Each lecture is very thorough with regard to the historical underpinnings of the current situations. This emphasis on context is helpful in sorting out daily news articles and television reports. You have increased my knowledge and enabled me to be more analytical about new information in these areas. – Roberta Klein

Your lecture series has much improved my quality of life. It's been very thought provoking. Today's lecture was excellent and no exception. – Patti Heil

We just had a couple move in who cited the Active Minds program as a key part of their decision to move here. When they saw the flier on the wall, they said, “Oh, you have Active Minds here! That's wonderful! We love them.” – Troy Dunning, Activity Director, Christian Living Clermont Park

This was my first experience with Active Minds and I am extremely impressed! It was one of the most informational, articulate, and professional lectures I have ever heard. Kudos to you! I will be returning frequently. – Maria Helgesen

This is what Denver has been missing! Thank you! I enjoyed the intellectual stimulation so often not available in our jobs and daily lives! – Jeanie Kroon

Many, many thanks for providing an outstanding program for Douglas County Libraries. The feedback from patrons was overwhelmingly positive. I truly enjoyed working with you and hope to do so again soon. – Elizabeth Kelsen-Huber, District Program Coordinator, Douglas County Libraries

We got a move-in from our very first Active Minds event. Sandy attended a program on Venezuela and at that time had no thoughts of assisted living. Two weeks later, however, she realized that caring for her husband was getting overwhelming and she called us. She moved him in the next month. She never would have known about us if it hadn't been for the Active Minds event she attended here. We love the Active Minds programs and it is helping us connect with our future residents! – Michelle Newitt, Marketing Director, MorningStar Senior Living at Applewood

Partnership with Active Minds is good for everyone. It brings smart, interested people to our events, as well as an age group we need. I'm impressed that Active Minds does so much preparation with their attendees, which is certainly rewarding to them, and for us it makes for an increasingly knowledgeable group of film-goers.” --Howie Movshovitz, Artistic Director of the Denver Silent Film Festival and Director of Education at the Starz Film Center at the University of Colorado at Denver
