Creative Aging in CT Libraries

A Partnership Program with Lifetime Arts, the CT Office of the Arts, and the CT State Library

Project Overview

Lifetime Arts, the CT Office of the Arts (COA), and the CT State Library are partnering to pilot and strengthen arts education programing for older adults in CT public libraries, as well as build and deepen opportunities and relationships with established and emerging COA teaching artists and CT libraries.

Lifetime Arts will provide training as well as access to new online resources, including Creative Aging Foundations On Demand, for all public libraries in the state and with the lead partners, will oversee the implementation, documentation, and dissemination of 10 creative aging programs in CT libraries.

Acknowledging the diversity, complexity, and changing needs and interests of older adults, this opportunity seeks to position libraries and Connecticut as an age-friendly state through this arts-centered experience.
