Reframing the way we look at aging.
As the premier creative aging organization in the Midwest, AAKC is preparing our communities to provide older adults of all abilities with meaningful ways to enrich their lives by participating in the arts.
In the next decade, the population of seniors 65+ will grow from 13% to 20% of the U.S. population. There are few resources available to engage these individuals in beneficial creative aging programs, especially among marginalized populations such as those of ethnic minorities and lower socio-economic status.
The demand for artful aging programs and solutions is increasing rapidly, as groups seek to become "communities for all ages." Arts & AGEing KC is prepared to deliver evidence-based programs to older adults and intergenerational audiences wherever they gather. We also provide education and consulting for communities and organizations, and can demonstrate how these programs provide health and social benefits.
