SU-CASA is a community arts engagement program that places artists and organizations for collaborative residencies 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.
Programming supported through SU-CASA engages older adults in participatory arts projects with an emphasis on hands-on learning and adaptive teaching. The residency culminates in a public program component showcasing the participants’ progress and creative expression that is open to the center’s surrounding community.
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.
