The Laundromat Project advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities.

About Us

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.

Bed-Stuy Happenings

The Laundromat Project is proud to be putting roots down in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

We offer a variety of community programs out of our storefront on Fulton Street, designed to provide accessible arts education and opportunities for Bed-Stuy community members. Check out what’s new in our neighborhood!

Opportunities for Artists

We have many opportunities for artists based in New York City! Since 2005, The Laundromat Project has directly invested over $1M in 200+ multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists; 86 innovative public art projects; and a creative community hub in Bed-Stuy, while engaging over 48,000 New Yorkers across the city and beyond.

Current Projects

We work with artists and cultural producers who are interested in developing and deepening a collaborative, community-based, and socially-engaged creative practice.

Our Artists

We make sustained investments in growing a community of multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists and neighbors committed to societal change by supporting their artmaking, community building, and leadership development.

At the Laundromat Project, Artists Are Ambassadors of Joy and Activism. Read More.

Kemi Ilesanmi has been the Executive Director of The Laundromat Project for ten years. What we’ve been able to accomplish as a community under her leadership is a reflection of her vision, dedication and love. We are so grateful to her and wish her well on her next adventure.
