Age and Creation

A practice journal of creative experience and aging

Age and Creation is an open-source interdisciplinary practice journal centred on utility. Our intent is to provide practical information and ready-to-use resources useful to a wide range of readers who are engaged in the promotion of older adult wellness, especially those using artistic practice, technology, or a combination of the two as tools in support of healthy, successful, and happy aging.

Founded in 2023 with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Age and Creation‘s inception was part of the knowledge mobilization activities of a five year project under the Council’s Digital Strategy Fund called direct[message]: Access to Engagement for the Aging Community.

Centre[3] for Artistic + Social Practice, the direct[message] project lead and publisher of this journal, envisions Age and Creation as a communal space where a wide range of other community-located, arts-based, and seniors-led projects can share their successes and challenges in forms immediately useful to other in-community artists and practitioners.
