Join the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Flagstaff Arts Council to learn more about Creative Aging, an exciting national movement to advance understanding of the vital relationship between creative expression and healthy aging.
Guest artist Elizabeth Johnson will provide an interactive exploration of the different approaches used across the continuum of care, and the brain/body research which shows that older adults who are engaged in the arts experience better overall health, enjoy a higher quality of life, and are more active in their communities. Participants will connect with other providers and artists interested in enriching the lives of older adults in their community, and will leave with concrete tools and ideas for Creative Aging in their own programs and work.
Who should attend? Anyone interested in the vital relationship between the arts and quality of life for older adults, including aging or healthcare service organization staff, caregivers, volunteers, teaching artists, and arts organizations.
