Lead Artist, any discipline- Arts & Health: Healthy Aging Through the Arts

Arts & Health: Healthy Aging Through the Arts seeks an artist (any discipline) interested in facilitating community-engaged arts practices with older adults. 2022/23 is Arts & Health’s 17th year of community-engaged arts programming with seniors and Elders in the Lower Mainland, on the traditional, unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. At each project site, an artist works with a group of older adults to co-create art. The creativity, knowledge and life experience of each participant is acknowledged and their contributions to the project develop through collaboration. The facilitating artist brings their arts expertise and facilitation training to this multitude of voices to challenge group members and to ‘lead from beside’ in a collaborative arts practice.
