Senior Artists Research Project


For the first time ever, an influential group of Canadian arts organizations is joining forces to look for ways to do more to support Canada’s senior artists (that is, artists in all disciplines who are 65 and over). The Senior Artists’ Research Project is the first-ever assessment of the situation and needs of older artists in Canada. The goal of the project is to conduct in-depth research and implement solutions to the difficulties faced by Canada’s senior artists (65+), many of them the founders and creators of the cultural fabric of our country.
