Creative Aging promotes vital aging by bringing the arts to life where seniors live and gather. The only organization of its kind in our region, Creative Aging hires local professional artists to perform and teach seniors in nursing homes, retirement communities, adult day programs and senior centers, ensuring that even the frailest seniors maintain an enriching connection to the arts. Since receiving our 501(c)(3) status in 2004, Creative Aging has presented 4,800+ performances and workshops at 56 facilities in the Mid-South, improving the quality of life for more than 30,000 older adults. At the same time, we have paid almost $700,000 in performance fees to local artists. And we are just getting started!
