AFTA’s mission is to engage older adults in health improvement and life enhancement through regular participation in the arts. Our goal is to stimulate minds, bodies, spirits and imaginations. Click below to see how in our new video.
Our workshop curriculum is artist-led and includes visual, musical, performing, literary, multidisciplinary and intergenerational arts experiences. AFTA’s impact focuses primarily on older adults with age-related impairments.
Programs are led in community and residential care settings, and in cultural institutions, by an experienced faculty of teaching artists, grounded in diverse artistic specialties and trained AFTA’s nationally recognized best-practices.
