    Given the desire to slash and burn, what should be done to continue these programs?

      Roy, I think many organizations are beginning to realize the growing elder segment. Grant money is starting to be designated solely for this.

      What’s been pretty cool: on LinkedIn, I’ve been getting a LOT of comments, from a variety of groups, about this subject. If we leave it to the public, it’s not going to happen. Arts understand, and the groups need the support.

    HI there, thank you for writing this series on creative aging, it was great! Just FYI, NCCA has an ongoing partnership with Grantmakers in Health, Grantmakers in Arts and Grantmakers in Aging to educate funders and grantmakers on the benefits of funding creative aging programs. Through this project we’re seeing funding finally opening up in this area, slowly bur surely. You can read more about the project here: http://www.creativeaging.org/programs-people/grantmakers-partnership-projects

    Thanks again!

      Katie: thank you so much for that info. It’s one of the big questions I have gotten on LinkedIN and other sources that this has been generating discussion. I’m glad you enjoyed this: I’ll be posting more in the next week.

    Again, I think that it is a great initiative, and I wish that it could be organised this side of the pond.
