Help us reach our goal!

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.

What does art mean to us?

“Art makes new realities possible today!”
“Art is foundation.
Art is life.”
“Art dreams with everyone to make.”
“Art changes perception of the world.”

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.
