Important News

As of June 30, 2018, Elders Share the Arts (ESTA) has drawn to a close its long and fruitful 40th-year history.
ESTA, a small New York City arts service organization, pioneered the field of creative aging which is now flourishing.

We are passing on our stellar programs (Pearls of Wisdom, History Alive, and Legacy Arts) to like minded arts organizations.
We have fulfilled our mission and are proud to pass the torch.

Transforming Memory into Art

Leaders in the field of Creative Aging since 1979

Elders Share the Arts offers high-caliber arts programming that ignites creative expression, cultivates elders' role as bearers of history and culture, and generates new pathways to connect them to their communities. ESTA's residencies are a springboard for developing and researching replicable programs, and through our training we provide opportunities for organizations to help serve this growing population.
