Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission: Kansas Creative Aging Project

Project Description


The Kansas Creative Aging Project will strengthen the state’s creative aging infrastructure through professional development, networking and multisector programming. In consultation with nationally recognized experts Lifetime Arts, Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission will convene a multisector cohort to engage in professional development training and allow for both whole-group network building to lay the foundation for program development and sector-specific breakouts to address directed topics. The program will identify three potential pilot programs to design, develop and trial during fiscal year 2022. These three pilots will focus on three levels of program delivery:iIndividual artist, organizational and state agency. The goal is for seniors to be served through the pilot programs in multifaceted ways: as participants in creative aging programming, as organizers and mentors, and as empowered arts leaders.
