Creative Aging Program

January 22, 2018
Teaching Artist Opportunity
The Maine Arts Commission is offering a Creative Aging Teaching Artist Training on January 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Theater at Monmouth. Come learn the components and intricacies of the Creative Aging philosophy, and apply to be listed on our agency’s Creative Aging Teaching Roster.
The training is free of charge and is open to all teaching artists.
This training is mandatory for applying to the Creative Aging Teaching Artist Roster, a prerequisite for applying to the Creative Aging Grant program.


Any organization who applies for the Commission’s Creative Aging grant must use an artist on our Roster — so this is the ideal time to learn about Creative Aging and be a part of this important program.
The training will be led by the Commission’s Executive Director, Julie Richard, who has a deep knowledge of the breadth of Creative Aging approaches. Julie has attended many Creative Aging training sessions herself led by artists such as Liz Lerman and Susan Perlstein with organizations including TimeSlips and Lifetime Arts.
Artists completing this training must apply to be on the Roster. That deadline is February 16, 2018.
Melledy Hall is wheelchair accessible and is the large white building with a green metal roof. If you need an additional accommodation to fully participate in this event please contact Kathy Ann Shaw at 207-287-2750 or
