Low-cost artist workspace. Making NYC more affordable so creativity can thrive.
Established in 2011, Spaceworks is a nonprofit cultural community development organization dedicated to expanding the supply of long-term, affordable rehearsal and studio space for artists working in New York City.
Spaceworks provides artists with the workspace that they need to make their practice possible. We believe this strengthens the cultural landscape of the city, making it a more affordable place for artists to work and live.
