Arts for Elders

The Arts Council of Hillsborough County has a long-standing commitment to support dynamic arts initiatives for Hillsborough County residents. We believe there are positive physical and emotional effects of life-long learning.

The goal of our Arts for Elders program is to design and implement artistic residencies and performances for both frail and active elderly populations in aging services venues throughout the county. Such arts programs have proven to be an extraordinary link to maintaining the vitality and energy essential to successful aging.

The Arts for Elders program began in FY 2002 with placement of performing artists in eight Hillsborough County elder daycare facilities.
