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 48,000 New Yorkers across the city and beyond.
The Create Change Fellowship program is for artists and cultural producers who are interested in developing and deepening a collaborative, community-based, and socially-engaged creative practice.
The Create Change Residency program supports the development of participatory and community-attuned creative projects by artists of color working within their communities.
The Bed-Stuy Residency program supports the development of participatory and community-attuned creative projects by artists of color who live, work, or are otherwise invested in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Create Change Institute is a virtual, 2-day intensive version of The Laundromat Project’s 6-month Create Change Fellowship Program. This workshop trains participants in meaningful collaboration with communities on shared creative projects while addressing social issues and using a racial justice lens.
Create Change Institute (CCI) is for artists, activists, advocates, administrators, organizers, cultural workers, and change makers. We invite anyone interested in developing or deepening their collaborative, community centered, and culturally-based creative practices to participate.
