Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Performing Arts

Mission: Creative Aging Mid-South improves quality of life for Mid-South seniors by providing access to experiences in the arts. We accomplish that by hiring local professional artists to perform and teach seniors in nursing homes, retirement communities, adult day programs and senior centers, ensuring that even the frailest seniors maintain an enriching connection to the arts.

Results: Since beginning programming in 2005, Creative Aging has presented more than 5,000 performances and art-making workshops at long-term care and retirement communities, senior centers, and adult daycare programs. In doing so, we have paid more than $725,000 in performance fees to Memphis artists, and brought the arts alive for 30,000 seniors.

Target demographics: seniors continue to have access to the arts where they live

Direct beneficiaries per year: more than 6,000 seniors at 50+ residential communities in the Mid-South

Geographic areas served: the Mid-South

Programs: musical performances, art-making workshops, personal story-telling, and drumming
