Creative Aging Kansas

Leveraging the arts for joyful living

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission has been honored to join a cohort of 36 grantees — state and jurisdictional arts agencies — in advancing the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies’ Leveraging State Investments in Creative Aging initiative with E.A. Michelson Philanthropy.  Creative Aging leverages the arts—including music, poetry, literature, storytelling, dance, theatre and the visual arts—in ensuring our nation’s population ages not only with sound health, but also with independence, dignity, purpose and joy.

In partnership with

Creative Aging Kansas

In consultation with nationally recognized experts Lifetime Arts, Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission has developed a multi-sector cohort of teaching artists that provide site-specific creative aging workshops across the state.  Additionally, KCAIC has developed a robust network of organizational and state agency collaborators within Kansas and nationwide. The goal is for seniors to be served through the programs in multifaceted ways: as participants in creative aging programming, as organizers and mentors, and as empowered arts leaders.

This activity is made possible by a grant provided by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies in partnership with E.A. Michelson Philanthropy.
