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 Creative Aging Festival. The Festival takes place each May in conjunction with Older Americans Month at senior centers and community locations throughout the county.

New Artist Residency Pilot

To provide deeper arts experiences, ARTSFAIRFAX and NCS will pilot an Artist Residency Program for Spring/Summer 2019.  Select Senior Centers from each region of the county will be paired with professional teaching artists to offer unique high impact arts experiences.

Not only does our capacity for creativity increase as we age, but research supports the therapeutic link between creative self-expression and well-being.
