The National Guild’s Catalyzing Creative Aging program, provided in partnership with Lifetime Arts, is a multi-phase initiativeinitiative designed to support the establishment of new creative aging programs at nonprofit arts education organizations nationwide. Research shows that professionally-led, arts education for older adults fosters positive aging. Nonprofit arts education organizations are uniquely positioned to play a leading role in providing innovative programming for an aging population that is living longer, healthier lives.

The program provides funding, training, and technical assistance to community arts education organizations in order to:

  • Increase capacity to serve older adults through skill-based, participatory arts programs
  • Provide models of high quality creative aging programs to the field
  • Raise public awareness about the benefits of creative aging programs
