Artist Residencies

Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) places professional artists at community sites throughout the borough, bringing the joy of creative expression to elderly, disabled, homeless, and other at-risk populations. Residencies generally take place over the course of four months, with activities ranging from memoir writing and craft workshops to dance and theater production.


Welcome to SU-CASA, New York City’s effort to enrich the lives of its senior citizens through the arts. This initiative connects artists with seniors at their local community centers and positively impacts the well-being of older adults through multidisciplinary arts activities. Past activities have included memoir writing, crafting, dance and theater production, and many more. Programming is scattered throughout The Bronx, providing a creative outlet for seniors near and far to express themselves as they please.
