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. The Festival takes place each May in conjunction with Older Americans Month at senior centers and community locations throughout the county. A wide range of interactive activities including visual arts, vocal and instrumental music, dance, theatre, film, culinary and literary arts are planned.

Artist Residencies

To provide deeper arts experiences, ARTSFAIRFAX and NCS piloted an Artist Residency Program 2019. Sully, South County, Lincolnia, and Lewinsville senior centers were paired with professional teaching artists to offer unique high impact arts experiences. We plan to continue the residencies at four different senior centers in 2020.
