Implemented annually, SU-CASA is a community arts engagement program that seeks to connect artists with seniors in senior centers throughout New York City to positively impact the well-being of older adults through arts-based activities. The program places teaching artists and organizations in residence at senior centers across the five boroughs and provides selected artists with a stipend in exchange for the creation and delivery of arts programming for seniors. SU-CASA is a collaboration among the New York City Council, the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), the Department for the Aging (DFTA) and the City's five local arts councils. In the Bronx, BCA administers the implementation of individual artist residencies in senior centers throughout the borough.
