Rooted in the pioneering work on Ufe review and reminiscence of Robert N. Butler's International Longevity Center, Living History Arts synthesizes oral history and the creative arts to assist older adults in drawing on their life experiences and transforming their memories into visual or other artistic representations.\n Public performances and workshops that include authence participation occur in a range of settings, from schools, senior centers, healthcare venues and places of worship to such open-air locations as an urban waterfront - and even prisons. HEALTH, WELLNESS PROGRAMS Health-related programs use both professional arts and arts therapy programs for groups ranging from active older adults - those who participate in the growing number of wellness programs at senior centers, for example to frail elders in the care of others at home, in long-term care facilities or in healthcare institutions.
