The London Creative Age Network collaborates with a talented group of professional artist educators (BEd and MEd) from artistic disciplines, including theatre, writing, music, voice, painting, the rhythmic arts and more. In addition to bringing expertise in professional artistic performance, they are experienced educators and facilitators of community-engaged arts experiences in our community.
Our workshop facilitators have a background in adult education. Three of our core volunteers have completed the National Centre for Creative Aging program Artist Training in Arts and Aging. The manual (pdf file) can be found on the internet.

Community-engaged art is artistic or creative self-expression activity based in a community setting. Works from this genre can be of any media and are characterized by the individual’s interaction or dialogue with the community.
