Studio space
9-months of free studio space within a larger, shared space with 24/7

There is a modest one-time stipend depending on funding. There is no
monthly living stipend.

Professional Development
Workspace residents meet as a group once a week, on Tuesday nights, for
Salon Evenings. Salon Evenings take different forms: group events like
potluck dinners; individual studio visits with arts and literary
professionals; workshops on practical issues like taxes, copyright, and
grant-writing; as well as artist talks and readings. For a complete list
of past guests, please click here.

Workspace residents get access to services, including Materials for the
Arts and Fractured Atlas.

Visiting Artist Status (for Visual Artists Only)
Workspace visual artists are offered visiting artist status at partner
institutions. For details on these opportunities, click here.

Public Programs
There are opportunities to present work to the general public including
presence on LMCC’s website, Works-in-Progress: Open Studios (coinciding
with NYC art fairs) and an end-of-session Open Studio Weekend.


The 2009-2010 Workspace Residency location will be announced at a later date.

The 2008-2009 Workspace Residency is located on the 29th Floor of the
Equitable Buidling at 120 Broadway in space generously donated by
Silverstein Properties, Inc. and the 10th Floor of 77 Water Street. Like
its first location in the World Trade Center, this program continues our
mission to place artists in studios just blocks from Wall Street, changing
what it means to “work” in the Financial District.

About Workspace

Workspace is a studio residency program focused on the creative process
for emerging visual artists and writers. Workspace seeks to give emerging
visual artists and writers working in a range of media and genres the
space, time, and resources to develop new work.

It has always been our goal to address the critical need for affordable
studio space in Manhattan by inserting artists and writers into unique,
underused, and unexpected spaces in Lower Manhattan in a way that enhances
the downtown cultural landscape and invigorates the community.

Program History

Workspace has been serving visual artists and writers for over 10 years.
The program began in 1997 in the World Trade Center in space donated by
the Port Authority of NY and NJ. Since then, generous New York City
building owners, including Silverstein Properties, Inc. and Trinity Real
Estate among others, have donated temporarily vacant office floors to LMCC
for use as studios. Workspace has provided over 300 artists and writers
with rare access to some of the city’s most noted landmarks & including
the World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building, and the Equitable
Building. Workspace is now one of New York City’s largest and most
competitive residency programs for emerging visual artists and writers.

How do I apply?

Workspace is open to emerging visual artists and writers (including
international artists and writers and collaborative pairs of no more than
two people) working in a range of media such as drawing, painting,
photography, sculpture, film/video, installation/mixed media, sound,
performance, and new media/computer arts and genres such as fiction,
non-fiction, playwriting/screenwriting, and poetry.

Applicants must choose to apply as a visual artist or writer; applicants
cannot apply in both categories.

Artists and writers are selected for one 9-month session by two
discipline-specific panels of literary or arts professionals,
respectively. The panelists change every year. For a list of past jurors,
please click here.

Applications consist of two parts, an Online Form and mail-in materials
including Work Sample and Printed Documents. In general, we ask for
contact information; a Narrative Biography; an Artist or Writer’s
Statement; a Proposal; names of two references (not letters of
recommendation); a one-page resume; and work samples in the form of jpegs,
video on DVD, audio on CD, or pages of writing.


The 2009-2010 deadline for the Workspace is Thursday, April 9, 2009, 5PM.
(This is NOT a postmark deadline; it is an in-office deadline.)

There is one deadline per year for Workspace.
