New York State Council on the Arts

Government Agencies


“The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) is dedicated to preserving and expanding the rich and diverse cultural resources that are and will become the heritage of New York’s citizens.”

Creative Aging Focus:

An early supporter of lifelong learning, NYSCA was one of the first arts council in the U.S. to expand their Arts in Education program to include instructional arts programs for older adults. They have supported multiple trainings and seed programming projects throughout the state. In 2020, in collaboration with the NY State Office for the Aging, through a grant to Lifetime Arts, they established a cross-sector alliance to serve older adults through arts education.
