In an effort to continue to evolve our program offerings and respond to the changing needs of artists working in all disciplines and at all career stages, we have changed the structure of our artist residency programs and will no longer offer Swing Space starting in 2014. Resources previously offered through the Swing Space program will now be integrated into LMCC’s Workspace, Process Space, and SPARC programs.
Visual artists, performing artists, and writers are encouraged to learn more about our other artist residency programs and to sign up for our Artist Opportunities list to receive monthly emails about all upcoming Artist Residency opportunities, Professional Development workshops, and Grants for Manhattan based artists.
Launched in 2005, with generous support from the downtown real estate community and LMCC’s programming partners, Swing Space has placed over 1,000 artists in more than 25 different locations throughout Lower Manhattan and on Governors Island. Swing Space was designed to address short-term space needs for a wide range of projects and to encourage creative, experimental, and collaborative approaches to artistic practice in unconventional spaces. Swing Space was a project-based residency program that placed visual and performing artists and arts groups in space for the development and presentation of new projects and provided artists with space, publicity and public programs, and access to specialized support and resources.
