POC-Centered Principles

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.

directly invested since 2005.

Since 2005, we have invested in more than 200+ multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists; 83 innovative public art projects; and a creative community hub in Bed-Stuy, while engaging over 48,000 New Yorkers across the city and beyond.

The LP’s Spin Cycle blog houses all of our most exciting project updates, essays, staff news, and other miscellaneous outputs of our work.
