Key workers: creative ageing in lockdown and after
The creative ageing sector's response to supporting the wellbeing of older people during COVID-19 has been immensely impressive. However these organisations, like the rest of the arts sector, are worried about the future.
This report from the Baring Foundation is based on a small survey and 16 case studies of creative ageing organisations across the UK, as well as learning from a decade of funding in this field.
It highlights some of the ways in which arts organisations have supported the wellbeing of older people during the COVID-19 pandemic, explores the challenges that they are facing, and asks what needs to happen to make sure they can continue to do so.
