Create Change Fellowship

 

The Laundromat Project offers a six-month series of workshops and programs for artists interested in developing or deepening their practice of making socially relevant, socially-engaged art. Our Fellowship program exists in a near-vacuum of effective, affordable, intensive training for artists interested in learning how to do community-based, social practice work better and deeper.

 

Entering its fifth year, the Fellowship runs from April to October. Participation in the program requires a significant time commitment of roughly 200 hours. Up to 15 fellows are selected per year.

 

The fee for participating in the Fellowship program is $500. Please do not hesitate to apply because of the tuition price. The LP will be able to work with accepted candidates on a case-by-case basis as some scholarships and payment plan options will be available.

Create Change Residency

The Laundromat Project offers a six-month residency program for artists interested in developing and mounting a socially-engaged, socially-relevant, and participatory public art project in their local laundromat, community gathering and/or other everyday public spaces. The residency is open to artists of color living and/or deeply invested in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Harlem, and Hunts Point / Longwood.

 

As our flagship program, the Residency runs from May to October and requires a significant time commitment. Residents should expect to spend as much time building relationships with their neighbors and local community organizations to realize their project. 3 artists are selected per year, one per our anchor neighborhoods: Bedford-Stuyvesant, Harlem, and Hunts Point / Longwood.

 

Artists will receive a $5,000 honorarium as well as a production budget of up to $1,500 to complete their project.

Create Change Commissions

Beauty in Her Own Words - Sukjong Hong - September 12 2014-6

 

This opportunity is exclusively available to alumni from the Create Change Fellowship program.

 

The Create Change Commissions program is designed to resource and invest in the artists with whom we work. With few funding outlets in the field for this kind of art making, The LP is committed to creating a rich eco-system for art practitioners to learn, build and grow. Selected artists will be given an honorarium, production budget, and other resources to present an existing or new community-based, socially-engaged and relevant project in one of New York’s five boroughs.
