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

Welcome our 2024 Create Change cohort!

The Laundromat Project (The LP) announces its 19th cohort of artists and cultural producers chosen to participate in its 2024 Create Change Artist Development Program. Through Create Change, The LP invests in artist-led, community-based and community-responsive projects that explore topics impacting the well-being of individuals and communities of color across New York City neighborhoods.

The Spin Cycle is the Laundromat Project’s blog where we collaborate with community to write our own histories and tell our own stories.

Create & Connect Fund

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.

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 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.
