Visual Art

Whether it’s designing and painting murals to brighten up dull facilities, donating a print or a work of art, working with residents to create their own art pieces, or guiding volunteers to beautify the rooms of hospice patients, artists are a vital part of our mission. Bring your ideas to us, and let’s work together to see how we can create a more beautiful world for residents of these facilities.

Everyone knows there is no chance of success without a strong team behind the scenes making the nuts and bolts of the organization work smoothly. We need help with office work, marketing and special projects. Experience with fundraising, grant writing, and sponsorship skills are also helpful!

Music

Sing-alongs are one of our most looked-forward-to programs. One monthly themed music program is performed at a variety of locations. There are no rehearsals, so you should have some musical chops. You will be provided with a list of songs before the program and will receive music or word sheets at the event. The commitment is for one performance per month.

Dancers - Yoga Instructors

Dancers, choreographers, and movement specialists brighten the days of these wonderful folks by either performing or coming up with a movement activity to share as a group. We also need assistance for our dance program leaders (all levels welcome). You could also create a 10–15-minute video for our YouTube channel. Movements should be wheelchair compatible. For more information, contact us.

How you helpDo you want to bring the arts to those who have lost access because of illness or disability? Do you have the passion it takes to make the world a better place by sharing your gift for art, music, dance, theatre, or other forms of creative expression? Do you have a gift for the organization or working behind the scenes? Do you want to bring JOY to the spirits of others and to yourself?
About usWe bring music, dance, arts & crafts, and other creative activities to facilities for financially disadvantaged seniors. Our focus is on senior and convalescent facilities that have a very limited or no budget for arts activities. We also bring performing groups. Our team of arts professionals work together to create a program that will give the participants an opportunity to express their creativity while increasing cognitive function and enjoying social interaction. We Bring Joy!
