SU-CASA is a community arts engagement program that places artists and organizations for six months 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 older adults. The program has two components: 1) artists will engage participating members in an art project or series of cultural programs over the course of the residency, and 2) the residency will culminate in a public program component – exhibits, readings, performances, open houses or other cultural interactions open to the surrounding community.

For the 2020 program cycle, individual artists may apply for SU-CASA through their local arts council; organizations may apply for SU-CASA through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA). The program will support a total 204 residencies for individuals and organizations at senior centers in all five boroughs across the City’s 51 Council districts. Residencies run from January – June 2020. 

LMCC is proud to administer 20 residencies for individual artists on behalf of the borough of Manhattan. LMCC welcomes applications from Manhattan-based individual artists seeking residencies at participating senior centers in Manhattan.
