“Point of View: Why Creative Aging? It’s More Than Personal—It’s Societal,” is an article written by Maura O’Malley, Lifetime Arts CEO and Co-founder and published by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). In the article, Maura shares how navigating the senior care system for her creative aunt in her eighties expanded her interest in educational arts programming for older adults, and decades later, how Lifetime Arts was born through this research-backed movement. Additionally, she shares the importance of creative aging implementation in museums and how this sector can get involved.
What does ageism have to do with creative aging? Everything.
