Community Access

We envision a New York City in which everyone has access to inclusive spaces in which to gather and engage in their creative and cultural practices.

 

Creative Economic Initiative: Spaceworks offers free space to artists and cultural workers to host classes/programs in order to assist them in earning income from our spaces while providing a low-cost service to the community.

 

The Emergent Studio: This program support artists who have never had a studio or residency with free space for 4 months to create, with a focus on artists of color, immigrants, LGBTQIA, the disabled, and those living on low to modest incomes.

Space Grants: Spaceworks offers space grants in collaboration with and curated by our community partners to support the full vision and work of artists from underrepresented communities including communities of color, LGBTQIA, the disabled, and those living on low to modest incomes.

 

Space Rentals: Our subsidized spaces are available to rent for $10-20/hour and are ideal for creating  dance, music, theater, and interdisciplinary works as well as for community-based meetings and gatherings. Become a member to start reserving space.
