Selected artists will work with the senior center where they are placed to refine project goals and coordinate a schedule for residency activities and the use of facilities.
Bronx Council on the Arts is proud to be part of this program on behalf of the borough of the Bronx. BCA will accept applications from individual artists seeking residencies at participating senior centers in the Bronx only.
Individual artists-in-residence will receive a stipend in the amount of $6,000, an additional $ 2,000 materials/supplies budget, and access to materials and supplies from Materials for the Arts. Individual artists are expected to provide 25 contact hours of activity and can apply directly to participate in the program without a fiscal sponsor.
All components of the application must be received no later than 11:59 PM on December 4, 2023. Applicants will be notified of their application status and, if selected, which senior center they will work with by the end of January 2024. Residencies will take place between January 1, 2024, and June 30, 2024.
