Benefits of Public Art & Inspiring Aging Media Articles

Related to the two current Later Life Learning lecture themes there has been an increasing number of media articles focusing on both the positive use of public art for promoting positive transformative social change and improved individual and community health.


For example, in Winnipeg and other communities the use of public art in health facilities, on community buildings and streetscape road art seems to help improve community engagement among local citizens.

CBC at their Passionate Eye website features two documentaries on positive aging issues. One documentary is entitled Reversing Your Body Clock. The other documentary is entitled Stop Your Aging.

The website has produced an inspiring and hopeful film about aging and the types of attitudes and personal lifestyle activities that are proven to help keep older adults mentally, physically and spiritually healthy.
