ArtForum published an article highlighting the initiatives that LMCC provides to artists to support them, from our grant programs, Creative Engagement and Creative Learning, to our artist residencies, Workspace, Process Space, Extended Life and SU-CASA. Please find an excerpt and a link to the full article below.
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council has announced that it will award more than $650,000 to the recipients of its Creative Engagement and Creative Learning Manhattan Arts Grants this year. It will also place one hundred artists in residency programs and organize more than 140 days of free cultural events throughout the city.
Among the residencies LMCC runs are Workspace, a nine-month program that encourages emerging artists to take creative risks; SU-CASA a community arts engagement program that places artists and organizations in residence at senior centers across the five boroughs; and Process Space, an initiative that helps established artists find venues in which to develop projects.
