The primary objectives of the Creative Aging Festival are to highlight the artistic talents of older adults; promote intergenerational understanding through dialogue, sharing traditions, and storytelling; and increase awareness about the value of creative engagement to adult health and well being.

The Creative Aging Festival program guide features creative aging events and exhibits in May. Printed program guides will be distributed through area arts and aging venues in April.
