SpaceworksNew York, NY
More than 100,000 artists make New York City their home, and the City boasts many art institutions that train emerging talent. Cultural organizations provide temporary studio or rehearsal space or short-term artist residencies for artists, but the high demand for these programs shows that permanent space is at a premium. If the City is to sustain and grow this talent pool, establishing a network of affordable spaces for them to work and create is critical.
Spaceworks is a collaborative real estate intermediary that creates long-term and permanent studio and rehearsal space for use by artists. Local arts and community leaders have welcomed the initiative as a way to revitalize communities while addressing the critical need for affordable and accessible workspace for artists.
This creative real estate initiative will help to secure the prominent role that the arts play in the life of our City.
