CADA website launches

MICRA are delighted to announce that the CADA website is now live.

CADA is the Creative Ageing Development Agency. It is hosted by Manchester Museum, Supported by The Baring Foundation, Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Arts Council England and in collaboration with MICRA.

On the site, you will find a summary of the research that the Audience Agency produced for CADA on older populations in England and insights into cultural and creative participation. This report aims to provide useful data to inform work on creative ageing, so please use the findings in your own work. There is also a recording of the event on 19 October, to launch the research and to present emerging findings on creative ageing from both the Centre for Cultural Value and the Celebrating Age programme.

There’s a recent report on Greater Manchester Culture Champions on the website and we are planning more work on citizen-led cultural activity. CADA ask that you please get in touch if you have examples of work where older people take the lead that you would like to share.

The website also includes a map detailing major national investment in ageing by the National Community Lottery Fund (the Ageing Better programme) and Arts Council England (Celebrating Age) and the location of members of the Age Friendly Communities network (Centre for Ageing Better) across England link. You can check out your locality.

CADA has begun an initial piece of work about creative ageing in South Asian communities working with Arti Prashar and Elizabeth Lynch and THEY will post progress on THE site in the next few months.
