Join our Next Online Creativity Circle

Posted 1/14/2021

Martin’s Point Health Care has been chosen to pilot a community-based online Successful Aging Creativity Circle and is seeking participants. This free program will take place via Zoom on Thursdays from October 8th – November 26th and all materials will be sent to participants.

The goal of the online Successful Aging Creativity Circle program is to test a program designed to help older adults manage a variety of age-related challenges, such as making friends as we age, finding ways to feel resilient, keeping the brain and body healthy, managing stress, and taking time for self-care.

Using an online support-group model, the program offers 10-12 participants weekly meetings over a seven-week period, where they engage in facilitator-led sessions that offer an innovative blend of mindfulness, creative arts expression, and social-emotional learning. These three components combine to help participants share personal experiences and reflections, gain skills, and feel more connected to themselves and others.

The Successful Aging Creativity Circle is a program from The UnLonely Project, the signature initiative of the Foundation for Art & Healing (FAH). FAH was founded by Dr. Jeremy Nobel, MD, MPH, and was started as a creative arts trauma-recovery program for 911 survivors and military veterans. The UnLonely Project seeks to raise awareness and reduce stigma around loneliness and social isolation and develop programming to foster connection.
