Unleash Your Imagination
For over a decade, we have helped municipalities, institutions, and community groups develop and fund a wide variety of creative programs, events and activities for older adults.
We believe that creativity knows how to flourish at every stage of life. Our creative arts workshops offer seniors a vibrant platform to explore, create, and connect while embracing the transformative power of the arts.
How We Help Organizations
The CreativeAge Network has a winning track-record helping organizations secure funding for a wide variety of age-friendly programming. Our experience and research base enables us to write winning proposals, securing funding for creative projects of all kinds that have enriched the lives of older adults across South-Western Ontario.
Our Instructors and Workshops
We engage vetted and trained instructors who are passionate about delivering fresh, innovative programming for older adults. Whether in-person or online, they put care and consideration into all programming and that’s why we keep getting invited back!
