“Arts & Health: Healthy Aging Through the Arts seeks artists (any discipline) interested in facilitating community-engaged arts practices with older adults.
2018/19 is Arts & Health’s 13th year of community-engaged arts programming for seniors and Elders in the Lower Mainland, on the traditional, unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh Nations. At each project site, an artist works with a group of older adults to co-create art together. The creativity, knowledge and life experience of each participant is acknowledged and their contributions to the project develop through collaboration. The facilitating artist brings their arts expertise and facilitation training to this multitude of voices to challenge group members and to ‘lead from beside’ in a collaborative arts practice.
