An older woman with a sandy blond hair and wire frame glasses in a flower print shirt smiles and waves at the camera. Colorful ribbons are streamed between her and two others who stand on either side of her.


Join Creative Flagstaff and the Arizona Commission on the Arts to learn more about Creative Aging, an exciting national movement to advance understanding of the vital relationship between creative expression and healthy aging. The Arts Commission’s Director of Arts Learning, Elisa Radcliffe, and AZ Creative Aging Coordinator and teaching artist Angelina Ramirez will provide an interactive exploration of the different approaches used across the continuum of care, and the research which shows that older adults who are engaged in the arts experience better overall health, enjoy a higher quality of life, and are more active in their communities.

The Peaks, 3150 N. Winding Brook Rd, Flagstaff, Arizona 86001


Participation is free. Advance registration is required.

Anyone interested in the relationship between the arts and quality of life for older adults, including aging or healthcare service organization staff, caregivers, volunteers, teaching artists, and arts organizations are invited to join.
