Seeding Vitality Arts MN

OVERVIEW

Vitality Arts programs inspire and enable older adults to learn, make and share the arts in ways that are novel, complex and socially engaging. Successful Vitality Arts programs are led by teaching artists whose creative process and understanding of older adults bring joy, connection, improved health and well-being, and a renewed sense of purpose to older adults in community and residential settings.

Our goals for Seeding Vitality Arts MN are to:

  • Demonstrate the power and impact of creative aging programs to a broad audience at both a national and statewide level.
  • Encourage and equip arts and cultural organizations to develop participatory arts education programs for older adults.
  • Encourage and equip organizations that serve older adults to develop arts education programs.
  • Disseminate successful program implementation models.

Organizations selected to participate in the Seeding Vitality Arts MN program will receive an array of additional benefits and services.
