Culture Keepers

Culture Keepers provides visual art workshops for seniors at area recreation centers in low-income communities.

Program Description

Through the Culture Keepers program, Arts+ provides visual art workshops for seniors in area recreation centers. These twice monthly workshops engage seniors who participate in Mecklenburg County’s Senior Nutrition Program’s Congregate Meal Services in a creative and collaborative environment. Through the workshops, seniors benefit from consistent, ongoing exposure to music and visual art and the opportunity to create together. The program benefits seniors who live in primarily low-income areas and provides access to regular arts experiences.
