Arts for the Aging is honored to receive the 2020 Impact Award from Nonprofit Village. The Impact Award is presented to nonprofit organizations that demonstrate their ability to enact social change through collaboration and sustainable management practices. Our heartfelt thanks to Nonprofit Village for this wonderful recognition, and congratulations to fellow awardee, the D.C. Children’s Advocacy Center, Safe Shores!

In an interview with philanthropist and Nonprofit Village board member emeritus, Jeffrey Slavin — pictured here with Michele Booth Cole of Safe Shores and Arts for the Aging’s Director & CEO Janine Tursini — hear about how Arts for the Aging builds community, and more.

We are delighted that one of our Quicksilver dance company members could join us for the ceremonial (virtual!) presentation.

It is wonderful to be a member of a team that is innovative and creative, and committed to improving the lives of senior citizens in a way that is so much fun.” –– Judith Bauer, Quicksilver dance company member and volunteer

We hope you have been inspired to join us this year in support of the new virtual platforms and heART Kits that are continuing through the pandemic to bring community, connection, and joy to so many older adults and caregivers in Greater Washington D.C.

We cherish this recognition and remain inspired to continue igniting the flames of creativity that lie within us all, leading to better health and wellness in aging.
