Image for NCCA Launches National Directory of Creative Aging Programs

Jun 20, 2013

The National Center for Creative Aging has launched a first of its kind Directory of Creative Aging Programs in America. Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, MetLife Foundation, and The Michelson Foundation, the Directory is a resource for older adults who want to get involved in the arts; arts and aging organizations seeking partners; and teaching artists interested in working with organizations committed to creative aging in their communities. It features arts programs serving older people and includes intergenerational activities in urban, suburban, and rural communities in a variety of settings such as community centers, senior centers, assisted living, adult day care, arts institutions, and libraries. It is also searchable by an assortment of options such as: location, arts discipline, program setting, and adaptive design.

National Guild Associate Director Ken Cole advised NCCA and the NEA on the development of the Directory. The National Guild helps members develop their capacity to serve older adults through its Creative Aging Initiative, which provides grants, training/technical assistance and information on effective practices.
