Project Partners

As the Creative Aging content experts, Lifetime Arts delivered nearly 30 live training, networking, and online learning events as well as technical assistance to build the capacity of senior centers, teaching artists and partnering arts organizations to plan, implement and sustain, excellent and responsive arts programming.


LiveOn NY led the advocacy effort to institutionalize Creative Aging as integral to senior services. They worked with the city’s elected officials to emphasize the importance of Creative Aging to the lives of older adults in NYC and specifically the crucial role that of SU-CASA plays in making Creative Aging programs available to older New Yorkers.


Working in cooperation with Lifetime Arts and LiveOn NY, Ruth Finkelstein, ScD, and her staff at Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging at Hunter College conducted a field analysis of SU-CASA over two years and used the findings to help develop recommendations.
