Arts@Large and the Wisconsin Arts Board

In the decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, artists of all disciplines invested themselves in Milwaukee: in our communities, our schools, and our arts organizations.  Now as these artists themselves are in their 60s, 70s, and 80s, it is time to know how our communities can invest in these artists.  This investment may come in the way of work, advice and counsel, direction to resources and information sharing, and other outlets for creativity.

According to Creativity Matters: The Arts and Aging Toolkit, older adult assets include:
  • A range of life experiences
  • The ability to recognize what is important and enduring
  • Objectivity and an even temperament
  • Fewer inhibitions
  • More time to devote to civic engagement
  • An understanding of how they learn best and the ability to shape their own learning processes
By answering this survey you will help to identify these assets and better serve the needs of Milwaukee’s mature artists.
