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
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.
