Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide (SPARC) is a community arts engagement program that places artists-in-residence at senior centers across the five boroughs of New York City.
SPARC is a collaboration between the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Department for the Aging (DFTA) and the City’s five local arts councils situated in each borough – Brooklyn Arts Council, Bronx Council on the Arts, Staten Island Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Queens Council on the Arts. SPARC began in 2012 and was developed as a part of Age-Friendly NYC, a citywide effort to make the City more livable for seniors.
