SPARC, Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide, is a community arts engagement program that places artists-in-residence at senior centers across the five boroughs of New York City. The program provides selected artists with a stipend and access to workspace in senior centers in exchange for the creation and delivery of arts programming for seniors. Selected artists will engage participating seniors in an art project or series of cultural programs over the course of the residency, which will also include a public program component – a series of exhibits, readings, performances, open houses or other cultural interactions open to the surrounding community.

HOW SPARC WORKS
In exchange for the creation and delivery of arts programming at a senior center during the residency period, SPARC artists-in-residence will receive a stipend in the amount of $1,500, an additional $500 materials/supplies budget, access to senior center workspace and access to materials/supplies of their choosing from Materials for the Arts. Individual artists can apply directly to participate in the program without a fiscal sponsor. SPARC expects to fund 50 artist residencies at senior centers across the five boroughs of New York City.
