NASAA Notes: November 2019

Leveraging State Investments in Creative Aging

The arts are a powerful avenue through which older adults flourish by realizing their creative potential, contributing to their communities, forming meaningful social connections and nurturing their physical and emotional well-being. State and jurisdictional arts agencies can play a leadership role in making these benefits more abundant for seniors and communities alike.

To explore how this occurs—and what might be done to amplify creative aging at the state level—NASAA conducted a national survey that inventoried state arts agencies’ creative aging efforts. Supported through a partnership with Aroha Philanthropies, the survey offers insights into current programs, common partnerships and future aspirations. Survey Highlights: Leveraging State Investments in Creative Aging summarizes the findings, and is one strand of an inquiry process NASAA is conducting to inform future collaboration opportunities with Aroha Philanthropies.
