The Nebraska Arts Council’s new Creative Aging through the Arts Program (CAAP) funds artist-led workshops at senior centers, assisted living facilities, libraries, or nonprofit organizations serving older adults in Nebraska.  Over the course of eight workshops, participants will hone their artistic skills in music, creative writing, drama, dance, or artmaking while engaging with peers.  Programs end with a final performance, exhibit or reading, shared with the local community.

Anne Alston, Program Specialist at Nebraska Arts Council, joined Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” to discuss the new program and how interested seniors and artists can get involved.
