NYC MAYOR’S OFFICE OF VETERANS’ AFFAIRS AND DEPARTMENT OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS ANNOUNCE NEW ARTIST RESIDENCY AT THE HARLEM VET CENTER Artists-in-Residence, the Social Design Collective, Will Work with Female Veterans to Engage Them More Closely in Services and Resources of the Vet Center FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 9, 2015 CONTACT: email@example.com, 212-513-9323 New York – The NYC Mayor’s Office of Veterans’ Affairs and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs have announced a new residency that will place the artist collective Social Design Collective (SDC) in the Harlem Vet Center. SDC will work with female veterans at the center on a range of socially-engaged art interventions, bringing them closer to the services and resources offered by the center. The residency is being supported by private funding from the David Rockefeller Fund through the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and public funding from the Department of Cultural Affairs. "New Yorkers understand that the arts benefit our communities in ways both large and small, from educating and inspiring individuals to increasing the vibrancy and quality of life for neighborhoods in all five boroughs," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. "This unique partnership between our Mayor's Office of Veterans Affairs and Department of Cultural Affairs is just one of the ways we are exploring to work more closely residents who sacrificed so much to defend and serve our country. The focus on engaging women veterans with vital services through creative programming is especially important forging new connections with a population that tends to access the benefits they¹re entitled to less frequently - and shows the visionary approach that Commissioner Sutton is taking to better serve our veteran community."
