An Affinity for Seniors
Creative-Aging Mid-South has worked in 56 senior facilities and produced over three thousand performances and workshops for older adults across the region. Their workshops include oral history, storytelling, weaving, watercolor, and many more. Creative Aging Mid-South’s success is owed to the cooperation of Meryl Klein and Terrie Kirksey who have dedicated several years to programming at senior centers. Kirksey, who spent almost thirty years at one facility, brought her expertise in organizing social events for seniors to Creative Aging Mid-South. In 2012 she won the Cynthia Patterson Award for Senior Advocacy.
