A New Vision

Healthier Aging Through Community Arts and Digital Technology

  • Resource and partnership development
  • Training support and production of digital information resources for artists/instructors/recreation and care providers
  • Consulting – start a Creative Age Network or programs in your area
  • Community Enterprise – a virtual store or Creative Age Gift Shop showcasing the creative work of older adults
  • Create @ Home – a subscription to “bite-sized” online video workshops and monthly creative projects in a box for older adults 50+
  • Online Gallery – a virtual showcase with seasonal exhibits

The global pandemic and access to technology provided an opportunity to establish a virtual centre for creativity and education to support local arts instructors and creative facilitators who serve older adult organizations, seniors social housing providers and low income older adults in the local region.

Like most others, we are now working from and creating at home. With our colleagues and community partners, we continue to explore and develop new and creative uses for existing digital devices, software and social media. We offer training and encouragement to empower a grassroots network of instructors, makers and creative service-providers who strengthen creative and healthy older adult communities in and around Southwestern Ontario.
