Creativity and Connection: Engaging Older Adults Through the Arts
Creative aging is an emerging and positive practice which engages older adults and their communities through joyful, sequential, social, and skills-based arts programming. In this dynamic webinar, you will learn how libraries nationwide are using creative aging programming to engage older adult patrons and form new partnerships to support this fast-growing demographic. Creative aging experts from Lifetime Arts will provide an overview of this research-based arts education model and share successful case stories from library workers in both urban and rural settings who have implemented programs and developed the necessary partnerships to support this important, cross-sector work. You’ll then receive a “backstage” tour of Lifetime Arts’ newly released and free online course, Creative Aging Foundations On Demand, a self-paced guide which will enable you to design and deliver engaging programs for the older adults in the library where you work!

As a participant, you will gain:

Concrete information about how to design and execute this proven program model in libraries

Diverse insights from library workers across the country who have implemented effective creative aging programs and partnerships

Key techniques for social engagement and artmaking with older adults

An orientation to a new self-paced, free online course with step-by-step instructions for implementing and sustaining creative aging programs and partnerships

This webinar will be of interest to: public libraries - programming, outreach, and adult services staff
