SU-CASA is a community arts engagement program that places artists and organizations for collaborative residencies at senior centers. In exchange for a stipend, artists create and deliver arts programming for older adults, focusing on hands-on learning and adaptive teaching. The residency concludes with a public program showcasing the participants’ progress and creativity.

SU-CASA aims to positively impact the well-being of older adults through arts-based, process-oriented activities. The program supports artists who are sensitive to the needs of older adults and are interested in building relationships with older adults at their local senior center. Through responsive collaborations, SU-CASA cultivates unique arts learning experiences and generative social exchange for participating older adults.

SU-CASA is supported by public funds from the New York City Council, in partnership with the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) and the Department for the Aging (DFTA). It is carried out in collaboration with New York City’s local arts councils. Additional support is provided by the Tiger Baron Foundation.
