Like many arts service organizations, Lifetime Arts is recalibrating its offerings to best suit the circumstances surrounding COVID-19.
Our #ConnectThruCreativityNow campaign is just one of the things that we are doing to advocate for continued artistic and social engagement for older adults while under quarantine.
Below you may access all of our campaign posts, which will also be findable on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook via the hashtag.
