Arts & Health: Healthy Aging Through the Arts is a working collaboration of seniors and professional artists, who work on the creative expression of ideas and issues that are important to them. The project provides a forum for expression and communication, exploration and imagination, which in turn fosters a sense of well-being and belonging.
Our work takes place across greater Vancouver, on the traditional, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl ̓ ilw̓ ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
We connect older adults with professional artists in community centres across greater Vancouver.Visit Projects
