Since its inception in 1989, BRIO has provided more than $1,197,000. to 399 artists. The selection of the awardees is based solely on the artistic excellence of the work submitted and judged anonymously by a panel of arts professionals (different panelists each year) from outside the Bronx and working in each respective field. Over its 25 years, BRIO has grown from ten annual awards of $1500 to over 25 annual awards of $4,000. The Bronx has the unique distinction of being the only borough in New York City to have an ongoing fellowship award for artists.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

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 the creation and delivery of 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 further refine project goals and coordinate a schedule for residency activities and use of facilities.    

For FY18, individual artists will be eligible to participate. Individual artists may apply for SU-CASA through their local arts council; any organization that submitted an eligible FY18 Cultural Development Fund proposal may apply for SU-CASA through DCA. The program will support a total of 208 residencies for individuals and organizations at senior centers across the City’s 51 Council districts.

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 $4,500, an additional $ 1,000 materials/supplies budget, and access to materials and supplies from Materials for the Arts. Individual artists can apply directly to participate in the program without a fiscal sponsor. Artists may apply for up to two residencies. 

All components of the application must be received no later than 11:59 PM on December 1st .  Applicants will be notified of their application status and, if selected, which senior center they will work with by the end of December 2017.  Residencies will take place between January 1, 2018 and June 30, 2018.
