Creative Lives Survey

Are you a part of arts organisation or institution that works with people? Have you considered how ageing is incorporated into your policies, infrastructure and programmmes? Is it included when planning education and training opportunities? Have you found ways of engaging diverse and intersectional groups of artists with funding?

Creative Lives network is undertaking a survey of arts organisations in the UK to uncover good practice that is happening in relation to the issue of age. The last two years have been particularly challenging for organisations and for older artists; we’re interested to hear about how institutions have responded to these challenges.

We’ll be using the information gathered to¬†write a good practice policy proposal that will encourage all institutions to positively engage with the problems of age and ageism in the creative industries.

If you can contribute to this survey, we’d love to hear from you.

Launch of Creative Lives Report

We’ve done it! The launch of our report happened on Friday 21 May, with lots of interested people in attendance. We also awarded our first Creative Lives badge to the Castlefield Gallery for the inclusive, diverse and anti-ageism programmes like bOlder, that they support. You can download our report below.
