About SPARC: Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide
SPARC is a collaboration among the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and five of the City's local Arts Councils—Brooklyn Arts Council, Bronx Council on the Arts, Council on the Arts and Humanities of Staten Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Queens Council on the Arts. It was developed as part of Age-friendly NYC, a citywide initiative started by Mayor Bloomberg, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York Academy of Medicine to make New York more livable for the City’s growing population of older adults.
The deadline to submit all application components for SPARC to local Arts Councils has been extended through Friday, November 9, 2012, 5PM. To access the SPARC Call for Artists application visit www.nyc.gov/culture or visit the website of the local Arts Council to which you are applying. Please note that due to server connection issues following Hurricane Sandy, the Department of Cultural Affairs is unable to update its homepage with the new deadline.
