ABOUT SILVER KITE
Silver Kite Community Arts works to eliminate loneliness and isolationism by creating and facilitating life-story based arts experiences.
We offer arts workshops to senior living communities, senior centers, libraries, and other organizations working with older adults in the community.
We partner with organizations to design and facilitate intergenerational programs which use the arts as a tool for connection, communication, and understanding.
Our work has been recognized by local and national organizations for its innovations and its ability to bring smiles to faces young and old.
Silver Kite received the Intergenerational Innovation Award from Generations United at their biennial global conference in June 2019.
We offer our programs in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. For those outside of our service area, we offer professional development, webinars, and consulting services to help communities and organizations to develop the skills to develop arts that change lives.
WHAT WE DO
Silver Kite offers award-winning intergenerational programs designed to connect generations through the arts. We partner with organizations to customize programs for your community through curriculum-based, after school, arts enrichment, and assembly programs.
ARTS EXPERIENCES FOR ADULTS
Silver Kite offers arts classes and workshops for older adults. Our teaching artists travel to retirement communities, community centers, and other organizations to teach workshops in all arts forms, designed to include all participants, regardless of physical or cognitive challenges.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & CONSULTING
Silver Kite offers in-person training and webinar programs for educators, teaching artists, senior living professionals, social workers, kinship care communities, and other intergenerational organizations to support the development and facilitation of arts based intergenerational experiences. We also provide intergenerational consulting services to organizations world wide.
