The Laundromat Project

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We amplify the creativity that already exists within communities by using arts and culture to build community networks, solve problems, and enhance our sense of ownership in the places where we live, work, and grow.

We envision a world in which artists are understood as valuable assets in every community and everyday people know the power of their own creative capacity to transform their lives, their relationships, and their surroundings.

Create Change

Our flagship program is designed to connect communities and artists in meaningful ways. We envision building a corps of artists inspired and equipped to work alongside everyday folks in creative endeavors right where they live.

The program recognizes that artists and the roles they play within their own communities ultimately improve the holistic quality of life in New York City’s diverse communities, particularly those of color and modest income. Over the long-term, we intend to foster and support artist-leaders who are empowered by, committed to, and fully conversant in community-attuned art practices.
