Danceworks IMAP

Danceworks Intergenerational Multi-Arts Program (IMAP) builds relationships between students from Milwaukee schools and older adults from assisted living and adult day programs through dance and visual arts instruction.

IMAP creates access to the arts and improves the lives of two underserved groups: urban youth and older adults.

IMAP’s primary goals are:

  • To build community between intergenerational groups through the creative arts.
  • To improve students’ attitudes toward older adults.
  • To improve older adults’ attitudes toward their own aging.

IMAP is implemented at urban schools with limited or no arts education programming and nearby assisted living and older adult day programs in the city of Milwaukee.
