The city announced a million-dollar program Monday that aims to foster partnerships between cultural organizations and 150 senior centers across the five boroughs.

The new initiative will bring 57 cultural organizations and senior centers around the city together through workshops, hands-on art programs, and visits to different cultural sites.

This comes after the Bloomberg administration announced plans to improve the quality of services it provides for older residents, including better access to the arts.

The program is a joint effort by the Department for the Aging, Department of Cultural Affairs, and the City Council.

Among the activities seniors will be able to enjoy include jewelry design, story telling, horticulture, blues cabaret, creative writing, and cinema.
