The Creative Center

The Creative Center at University SettlementIn 2011, University Settlement embarked on its newest merger with The Creative Center: Arts in Healthcare, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the creative arts to people with cancer, chronic illnesses, and through all stages of life.

Now called The Creative Center at University Settlement (TCC), the program continues to provide all of its current arts-in-healthcare programming in hospitals, other healthcare settings and on-site, as well as throughout its national replication and training project.

In addition, TCC will become integrated throughout University Settlement's senior programming.  Over the past three years, TCC has already partnered closely with University Settlement to expand into the growing "creative aging" field, putting into practice what recent research has shown; that arts activities and experiences provide not only opportunities for artistic and self expression, but also measurable health benefits to seniors at all stages in the aging continuum, enabling them to live better and healthier lives.
