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.
Teaching Artists Residencies
The Bronx Council on the Arts seeks artists with teaching experience every year to lead residencies in collaboration with Bronx-based community organizations. The selected artists commit to offer one 90-minute workshop per week over the course of their 12-week engagement.
The program aims to engage Bronx communities with the benefits of creative expression. Successful candidates have experience teaching and working with under-served communities, and possess a passion for arts education. Applicants must be a resident of the Bronx.
