NCCA Provides Ample Opportunities for Older Adults Interested in the Arts
In an article written by Dr. Linda S. Noelker, Board President for the National Center for Creative Aging, the baby boomer generation is targeted as a generation that could really benefit from the arts to help stay mentally sharp as they grow older. Research has shown that participating in the creative or performing arts can positively affect cognitive health, physical health and even social well-being for all ages. The National Center for Creative Aging’s website provides many events that are occurring around the country that older adults can participate in. For those interested in finding events, looking at local college and university art departments as well as local libraries and art councils are great places to start.
