Artist Funding

In addition to our flagship Create Change program, The Laundromat Project directly funds and commissions creative community building projects by New York City artists and neighbors through three initiatives: Create & Connect, Create & (Re)Connect, and Create & Reflect.

Create & Connect

Launched in 2020, Create & Connect is a micro-grant fund that seeds and supports creative projects by cultural practitioners, community builders, organizers, and makers living in our home of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Create & (Re)Connect

Create & (Re)Connect (formerly Creative Action Fund (CAF)) is a micro-grant initiative to seed the ideas and civic actions of The LP Create Change alumni network. This fund is a critical part of our vision to make sustained investments in our growing artist network, nearly 250+ artists strong, by supporting their artmaking, leadership, and professional growth.

Create & Reflect

Create & Reflect, launched in 2022, invites visual artists to propose an artwork for a vinyl installation on the front street-level window of our community hub at 1476 Fulton Street in Bed-Stuy. The Laundromat Project will commission and showcase the artwork of one artist per year.
