Lifetime Arts, Inc
Lifetime Arts is a nonprofit arts service organization working nationally to support the health and wellness of older adults by promoting the inclusion of professional arts programs in organizations that serve older adults; training artists to develop the creative capacity of this population; and fostering lifelong learning in and through the arts by increasing opportunities for participation in community based programming.
Through a variety of services and initiatives they provide technical assistance in the design, funding and implementation of creative aging programs, helping organizations build livable communities for all ages. In recognition of their innovative programs, Lifetime Arts received the 2012 Creativity and Aging in America Leadership Award/Lifelong Learning from MetLife Foundation. Their work with public libraries is featured in Stories for Change: Best Practices Re-Defining the Arts to New Audiences, an international compendium published by Partners for Livable Communities.
We maintain a Roster of teaching artists who are qualified to work with older adults and encourage artists interested in Creative Aging to apply for the Roster through our website. In the coming year we will supporting Creative Aging workshops in approximately 40 libraries in the New York metropolitan area in a variety of artistic disciplines.
Although we don't "make" art ourselves here in our administrative office, we're excited to be part of the burgeoning art scene in downtown New Rochelle. We encourage artists in all disciplines to come to our building, visit the studios and join us in making New Rochelle a new hub of artistic activity in Westchester.
