Stories That Move Us




2 pm - 3 pm

Over the past four months, a group of seniors and differently abled people have gathered together to dance and share stories each week.  Artist Larissa Sheldon leads this group as part of her SPARC residency at the JASA Brighton/Manhattan Beach Senior Center. Come see a short film of interviews with the seniors.

The public is also welcome to participate in a workshop on Friday, June 28 from 10:30-11:45am.

SPARC is a collaboration among the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and the City's five local arts councils situated in each borough – 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 effort to make the City more livable for seniors, and previously ran in 2011-2012 after a successful pilot called Space for Art in 2009.  The 2012-2013 SPARC program is supported, in part, by public funds from the Department for the Aging.
