The Aging Artfully Initiative (AAI) is a collaborative group of community leaders and elder activists in Portland, Oregon.

We are forming a multi-generational community of caring people focused on the creative arts and aging artfully. AAI will have a physical, mixed use residential location, in addition to a network of friends and allies who provide services to each other and the wider community.

Seminars, workshops, events, and services, provided by our expert allies, will strengthen the cultural and financial resources that are essential to all artists, musicians and creatives.

Some of AAI’s visioning includes:

  • sharing our joy about vibrancy and aging through media, visual arts and festivals which highlight artistic achievement
  • business incubator services
  • marketing support to artists
  • a mobile art and personal history recording studio
  • co-housing opportunities for elders
  • administrative services
  • workshops
  • co-location work space

We are partnering with nonprofits that serve the Arts in retirement communities. They are allies who realize the significance of art and creativity throughout the aging process. We are developing relationships that foster our mission and encourage collaborative spirit.
