Each year in May we host our annual Creative Aging Symposium. This event is designed to  bring together artists, healthcare professionals, family caregivers, and older adults to exchange ideas and learn about the latest in research, model programs,  and innovative developments in the field of creative aging.

Additionally training is available specifically for artists  to help them learn all they need to know to provide high quality arts programs to older people of all ability levels. Also available is a training series for healthcare professionals to help them develop and enhance creative programs for the populations they serve.

The rapidly growing population of older people in North Carolina highlights the need for designing and delivering a variety of innovative programs that improve health, not only to prevent disease or infirmity, but also to promote positive physical and mental well-being.  Studies show that engagement in meaningful activities promote feelings of pleasure and a sense of connection and belonging.  Results reveal that these benefits reach caregivers as well.
