Mia is deeply committed to serving diverse audiences and to fostering lifelong learning through engaging arts experiences. We recognize there is a growing need in the community for visual arts programs for older adults that inspire, delight, and foster social-connectedness. 

This is especially important as the aging population is growing and has its own unique needs and interests. Research has shown that learning new skills is vital for cognitive function, that self-reflection is critical to adult learning and growth, and that social interaction is strongly correlated with the well-being of older adults.  We plan to innovate existing programs and explore new presentation formats to engage and inspire a wider audience of lifelong learners.
