The Arts in Libraries program intended to train and coach librarians and artists in the field of Creative Aging has been postponed until 2021. The project, announced in May, was originally slated to begin with face to face training sessions later this summer. More details on the rescheduled training will be announced as they become available.
Creative Aging is an effective way to address adverse health effects associated with aging with intentional arts engagement. Arts in Libraries will help Wyoming’s librarians and teaching artists learn how to provide innovative, arts-based direct programming for older adults.
The Wyoming Arts Council received a $20,000 grant from the Wyoming Community Foundation’s McMurry Library Endowment Fund to support Arts in Libraries. The Arts Council has partnered with the Wyoming State Library and Lifetime Arts on this project.
