Thriving Better Together: Creative Aging & Resilience | This is a three-part series about creative aging programs, how social isolation impacts elders, and the advocacy needed to address ageism and other forms of oppression within the arts and culture sector. Investing in strong, creative, resilient communities of care for our elders is, likewise, an act of care for all current and future generations.
Learn about the common barriers to participation for older adults and how to build creative aging programs in collaboration with local partners that address your community’s needs. Gain inspiration and practical advice from leaders at two, distinct programs: Community Music Center’s San Francisco based Older Adult Choir Program in partnership with the Department of Disability and Aging Services and 12 senior centers and Creative Action’s multi-year partnership with the City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department.
