Revitalized! A Pilot Program in Arts/Aging.
Kuykendall, Terrell J.; And Others
This book describes "Revitalize," an arts and aging program developed for the Fine Arts Council of Florida. The rationale behind the program, research involved in its structures, the evolution of ideas, the selection of the Neighborly Center, Inc. as a partner agency, the designation of sites for the program, the choice of artists, and the intent and structure of the program are all examined in the first section, Before Implementation. The next two sections, Implementation and Orientation and Implementation Site-by-Site, present the participating artists' views of the program development and include entries from the artists' journals. The final section contains poems and stories by some of the program participants. (Author/NRB)
