Featuring Create Change Artist Pelenakeke Brown
The Laundromat Project advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities. We make art and culture in community while fostering leadership among our neighbors through our celebrated Create Change Residency and Fellowship programs and our creative community hub, Kelly Street Collaborative, in the South Bronx.
The idea of a laundromat as a primary place for engagement has expanded over time. It now serves as a metaphor for a variety of settings in which artists and neighbors transform their lives and surroundings. This includes community gardens, public plazas, local cultural organizations, and more.
