We bring seniors together with professional artists to contribute creative work to their communities.


Arts & Health was designed to address the gap between the existing supports available for older adults in recreation facilities and those within the health care system, as well as to address the need for a new generation of programming that meets the needs and expectations of a growing older adult population.

Our project models are designed to support the establishment of new programming with both financial and administrative help as well as professional development opportunities for project staff. The ongoing community of practice mixes the new sites with experienced sites to support cross fertilization across programs.
