Lower Manhattan Cultural Council

The LOWER MANHATTAN CULTURAL COUNCIL, New York City, received $21,000 in support of Workspace. The Council is a leading arts presenter, advocate and service provider to artists and arts groups throughout the borough of Manhattan. Workspace provides studio spaces in downtown urban environments to emerging artists. It addresses the critical need for affordable space to work, and also creates an environment for artists to learn from each other and access career-building resources. This year, in two sites, the program will allow 30 artists, competitively selected via an open call, to occupy studios for nine months. Complementary programs that strengthen the residency include stipends; opportunities to meet leading New York curators, dealers, writers and collectors; and an Open Studios Weekend held at the end of the residency. Artists are given 24-hour a day, seven-day a week access to their studios.
