Being involved in arts and culture has significant benefits above and beyond adding a little entertainment to ones’ life. It’s connected to positive health and wellbeing outcomes including a longer life, lower rates of depression, and positive feelings of empowerment. There are so many ways to stay involved, whether by visiting a museum or taking one of the many art classes offered at the Colorado Springs Senior Center. Downtown Colorado Springs is recognized as a creative district of the state of Colorado by Colorado Creative Industries.
