Lower Manhattan Cultural Council

The LOWER MANHATTAN CULTURAL COUNCIL, New York City, received a two-year grant of $46,000 in support of the participation of emerging New York City literary and visual artists in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 Workspace program. Through progressive cultural planning, innovative artist residency programs, a multitude of funding and training opportunities, and the presentation of many free events in the visual and performing arts, the Council takes an integrated approach to enriching New York Citys creative capital. Its signature artist residency program, Workspace, offers nine months of free access to individual studios for talented, emerging artists selected through an annual open call process. Workspace provides up to thirty emerging visual artists and writers the space, time, and resources to develop new work. Workspace utilizes an open plan studio structure to foster community among its artists in residence. In addition to studio space, artists are given stipends for materials and supplies, valuable opportunities to network within the arts community, and access to additional resources and services to help strengthen their careers.
