Queens Council on the Arts is looking for artists who want to engage in a community-based project geared toward the borough’s senior population.

Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide (SPARC) places artists-in-residence at senior centers in all five boroughs.

Artists are chosen through a competitive application process and receive a stipend and access to workspaces in senior center. In exchange, artists will develop an art project or series of cultural programs, which must include a public program component, for senior citizens.

Applications for the 2013-2014 season are now available through the Queens Council on the Art and the City’s Department of Cultural Affairs websites.

The deadline to submit applications is Sept. 30. A Q & A for interested artists will take place on Sept. 12, at 5:30 p.m., at 31 Chambers St., Room 209, in Manhattan.
