Through a partnership with Omni New York LLC, an affordable-housing developer, we are excited to open a mixed-use creative space in the Melrose area of the Bronx.

This project builds on a 3 year engagement process of learning and listening to the needs of local Bronx creatives and cultural workers. In continuing our collaboration with our Bronx-based partners, this space will serve as a creative home where local artists can expand their creative and cultural practices and grow their community initiatives.

“It’s rewarding to see relationships grow, from artists working hard to find space, to building space, to working with artists operating their own studios in their own communities.”

Raul R. Rivera, Spaceworks’ Community & Engagement Manager
