The Laundromat Project advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities.
Since our beginning, The LP has centered the voices, cultures, imaginations, knowledge, and leadership of people of color (POC). We do this to push against complex systemic injustices in pursuit of a world in which all people—across race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, disability status, and migration status—are free to be their whole selves.
The Create & Connect Fund is a community micro-grant fund launched in 2020. The Fund seeds and supports the creative ideas and civic actions of artists, cultural practitioners, community builders, organizers, and makers in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
We have many opportunities for artists based in New York City! Since 2005, The Laundromat Project has directly invested over $1M in 230+ multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists; 89 innovative public art projects; and a creative community hub in Bed-Stuy, while engaging over 50,000 New Yorkers across the city and beyond.
I’m an NYC-based artist looking for development opportunities!
