AGE OF CREATIVITY

The Age of Creativity provides leadership, profile, advocacy and infrastructure development for everyone who believes in the value of creativity for older people. Established in 2012 with funding from the Baring Foundation, the project aims to support professionals working in arts, health, culture, social care, academia, voluntary and community sectors to enable more older people to take part creative activities and enjoy improved health, wellbeing and quality of life.


WHAT WE DO

The Age of Creativity is an online platform with an extremely wide and varied international membership base. The current website has 3 main functions:

  1. SHARE: an opportunity for members to upload and search for reports, evaluations, projects, research in order to build the evidence base and disseminate best practice.

  2. DEVELOP: a place to share and find the latest training, jobs, events and opportunities in this specialist field of work.

  3. CONNECT: a chance for professionals and organisations to give details about their work and interests in order to identify partners and networks.

MEMBERSHIP IS FREE. ALL members RECEIVE a free, tailored e-news update sent to THEIR inbox at regular intervals. We design and deliver an innovative programme of online events, as well as strong presence on social media. We invite members to write topical blogs and we also provide advocacy information for those who are new to our work.

We are an ambitious team and aim to extend this work in the future. If you would like to contribute to our development plans then please do get in touch. WE LOVE NEW IDEAS.
