New CFCArts program brings creative arts to senior citizens

“Social engagement and creativity were the key drivers behind this program,” said Diana Silvey, program director at Winter Park Health Foundation, which approached Orlando-based CFCArts with the idea for Arts In Action. Arts in Action is a natural fit for CFCArts, said executive director Joshua Vickery. The group already runs community choirs, an orchestra, a theater series, a performing-arts school and specialty programs for those with dementia and autism. But to pull off something this wide-ranging required partnerships with a multitude of community organizations, including Crealdé School of Art and Rollins College’s Cornell Fine Arts Museum, both in Winter Park; and the Art & History Museums and Holocaust Center, both in Maitland. Partner organizations will host classes and spread the word to their members.
