Experience the benefits of creativity.
Arts & AGEing KC (AAKC) is a pioneer in the field of creative aging. Our programs and educational resources are helping people of all generations experience the cognitive, social and health benefits of participating in the arts.
As the premier creative aging organization in the Midwest, AAKC is building and preparing communities to embrace the arts as a meaningful way to enrich the lives of older adults of all abilities. Our work has been celebrated globally, and our cooperative, evidence-based research on the impact of the creative arts in Alzheimer's and dementia public health education has been recognized in esteemed medical journals.
In Kansas City and beyond, Arts & AGEing KC is bringing people together around the common languages of visual arts, performance arts and music. Join us as we embark on the journey of artful aging!
