Designing Flexible Arts Programming in a Senior Center Setting


This webinar was offered to teaching artists and arts organization staff in NYC who delivered a Creative Aging program in any arts discipline in a senior center setting, and were applicable to SU-CASA residencies.

Attendees learned about:

  • Program models appropriate for senior centers
  • Capacity of senior centers to support Creative Aging programming
  • Ways to adapt their programs to match the organizational capacity of the senior center and the interests of the participants

The moderators, Annie Montgomery and Abigail Jefferson, interviewed Lifetime Arts Creative Aging Roster Artist, Spica Wobbe, about her experience teaching in the SU-CASA program and how she adapted her plans to suit the needs of both the center and the participants.

This free professional development opportunity is part of the New York City Creative Aging Initiative which has been made possible through the generous support of The New York Community Trust.
