Spaceworks was created in 2011 to address issues of space affordability for artists in New York City. The organization permanently closed in June 2020.

We worked hard in trying to reach our mission. Along the way, there were many tests and victories, and thousands of artists created countless works in our spaces. Ultimately, we could not create a path that would enable Spaceworks to achieve short or long-term financial stability given our organizational model and operating constraints. Spaceworks permanently closed operations in June 2020. Below is a list of resources for artists working in New York City. We thank you for your support of Spaceworks. It has been a pleasure serving you.
