Aroha is proud to have supported Pillsbury House + Theatre‘s Vitality Arts programming as part of the Seeding Vitality Arts Minnesota cohort. Pillsbury House + Theatre offered Vitality Arts classes in visual memoir and playwriting for older adults in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

“The fact we were all over 55 (all the way up into 90’s!) was one reason [the visual memoir class] worked so well. People our age have so many stories and so much wisdom…it was wonderful to have a place where we could share and be appreciated. I’m eager now to return to some creative efforts I’ve let lapse this past couple of years.” – Sharon Lyon, program participant
