The purpose of the conference is to convene leaders from local to international across the sectors of aging, arts, health, and social services who are dedicated to promoting and sustaining creative expression as vital to healthy aging. This conference intends to build capacity as well as showcase creative aging programs.

Attendees in arts, healthcare, education, and social services will experience a full day of breakout sessions along four tracks: health and wellness, lifelong learning, community engagement, and research and policy.
