Cultural Center

Few assisted living centers can boast the robust arts and cultural programming that we are fortunate to have at the SLC. Our sister organization the Scandinavian Cultural Center is truly one of our most special amenities. 

The SCC hosts events and programming that are open to both SLC residents and the broader local community. Residents and their families often share with us how much they value having such high-quality arts and cultural offerings available to them right on the premises.   

The SCC is New England’s premier destination for experiencing Nordic art and culture. In a region rich with arts and cultural experiences, the SCC plays a special role by curating events that celebrate and introduce the community to contemporary and traditional works of Scandinavian-influenced art. 

The exceptional acoustics of the SCC’s Nordic Hall enhance the experience of concerts, film screenings, and more. In addition to performances, there are plenty of other experiences to learn from and enjoy, ranging from authentic cultural celebrations, to the weekly pop-up Kaffestugan (café), to the Scandinavian Library’s collection of over 6,000 books by Nordic authors. The SCC offers the opportunity to celebrate Scandinavian heritage while at the same time inviting members of the broader community to expand their cultural horizons.
