SU-CASA Artist Residency | Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA)

SU-CASA is a community arts engagement program that places artists and organizations in residence at senior centers across the five boroughs of New York City. The program provides selected artists with a stipend in exchange for creating and delivering arts programming for seniors. The program has two components: 1) artists will engage participating seniors in an art project or series of cultural programs over the course of the residency, and 2) the residency will include a public program component – exhibits, readings, performances, open houses or other cultural interactions open to the surrounding community.

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.
