Workspace Open Call

LMCC Announces the 2013/2014 Call for Applications to Workspace!
Application Deadline:
Thursday, January 31, 2013, 5PM

Changing what it means to “work” in Lower Manhattan

Now in its 16th year, Workspace, one of LMCC's artist programs, is a nine-month studio residency focused on creative process and professional development for emerging visual artists and writers. Through the program's offerings—which include studio space, studio visits, talks and seminars, access to a network of peers, and public programs—Workspace encourages creative production, professional development, and community building in the early stages of an artist's or writer's career. Selected residents are expected to be active in their studio throughout the nine months by using the studio as a space for experimentation and dialogue.

LMCC has been able to address the critical need for affordable studio space in Manhattan by securing and adapting temporarily vacant office space Downtown in partnership with generous real estate owners. Since its inception in 1997 at the World Trade Center, Workspace has provided hundreds of artists and writers with studio space in some of the city's most noted landmarks. Workspace studio locations change frequently, but are always located in Lower Manhattan. (See Past Sessions for locations).
