ABOUT THE LAUNDROMAT PROJECT
The Laundromat Project advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities.
We envision a world in which artists and neighbors in communities of color work together to unleash the power of creativity to transform lives.
We make sustained investments in growing a community of multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists and neighbors committed to societal change by supporting their artmaking, community building, and leadership development.
ABOUT CREATE CHANGE
Create Change is The Laundromat Project’s artist development program, 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. 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. Create Change includes the Artist-in-Residence, Bed-Stuy Artist-in-Residence, and the Fellowship Program. Learn more about Create Change here.

ABOUT THE FULTON SREET WINDOW COMMISSION
The Fulton Street Window Commission invites visual artists to propose an artwork for a one-year vinyl installation on the front street-level window of our community hub at 1476 Fulton Street in Bed-Stuy. We seek proposals of 2D visual work that creatively use the street-facing window space to celebrate life in Bed-Stuy, Fulton Street, and our local community of neighbors and small businesses. The selected artist will be awarded $3,000 USD for their participation. Learn more about The Fulton Street Window Commission here.
ABOUT THE CREATIVE ACTION FUND
