Healthy Aging through the Arts offers seniors weekly arts workshops with a professional artist, an intern artist, and a seniors’ worker. The project facilitates seniors’ creative contributions to their communities, while improving their health and strengthening their sense of well-being. The program also builds expertise among seniors’ workers and artists working with elders. Artists from a variety of disciplines are currently working with seniors in the development of work in the visual arts, the written word, multidisciplinary performance, and digital storytelling.
