Event Details

Beth Bienvenu of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) leads a discussion on Creative Aging Thursday, April 16 at the Stifel Fine Arts Center.

Creative Aging is the practice of engaging older adults in participatory arts programs to benefit individuals and the community at large. Bienvenu serves as the accessibility director for the NEA, where she manages the NEA’s technical assistance and advocacy work devoted to making the arts accessible for people with disabilities, older adults, veterans, and people in institutional settings. She provides guidance and support to state arts agency staff and professionals working the fields of arts access, creativity and aging, arts and health, universal design, and arts in corrections.
