Explore the projects and activities supporting the development of arts and creativity with, by and for older people.

We work with local organization and seniors housing providers to develop new ways to support older artists, performers and facilitators with opportunities and placements.

Our training and professional development program supports older artists, seniors service professionals and others who work in the community with older adults to develop their creative practice and market their work.
