Creative Ageing Development Agency (CADA UK)


Organizational description provided by CADA:

We’re CADA, England’s Creative Ageing Development Agency, we believe that we all have a right to create and take an active part in creativity and cultural life at any age. We are working to lead a fundamental rethink and reflection on ageing and creativity, challenging ageism in the arts and heritage sectors, and society more widely. Society is richer when all older people are visible and valued; when communities come together to share arts, culture, and heritage through the lens of age and experience, and when there are opportunities for everyone to emerge, or re-emerge, as a creative talent in later life. We want to celebrate and champion the cultural contribution of older people, and harness that collective energy to support change. CADA is funded by the Baring Foundation, Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Arts Council England and hosted by Manchester Museum.
