Kathleen Mundell at MPBN's Augusta studios, talking with Irwin Gratz.

The Maine Arts Commission is trying to nurture the creative side of aging Mainers.  In some cases, the effort helps to preserve memories of what once was, or knowledge of traditional Maine crafts. Irwin Gratz spoke with Kathleen Mundell about how the Arts Commission - and artists - are working to cultivate the creativity of Maine's elders.
 
Kathleen Mundell discusses the effort to foster creativity in older Mainers in the latest issue of Maine Policy Review.
