ARTS FOR LIFE
In support of the Fairfax County 50+ Community Action Plan, ARTSFAIRFAX, Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) as well as other County agencies and community partners have partnered for the Arts for Life. As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we have made the decision to postpone the Arts for Life Festival, originally scheduled for May to coincide with Older Americans Month. A future date for the festival will be announced when it is appropriate to do so. We apologize for any disruption this may cause but believe it necessary to ensure the health and well-being of the older adults in our communities.
To provide deeper arts experiences, ARTSFAIRFAX and NCS piloted an Artist Residency Program 2019. Senior centers were paired with professional teaching artists to offer unique high impact arts experiences. Whether in person or online, ArtsFairfax is committed to offering ongoing opportunities for artists to practice their crafts and the community to engage in quality arts experiences. We plan to continue the artist residencies online through the virtual center for active adults in 2020/2021.
