LMCC is deeply committed to sustaining the creative lives of artists and small arts groups. At the core of our activities lie programs that provide artists with networks, resources, and support. These include residencies, grants, workshops, and other services.
Every year, LMCC invites individual artists and organizations to participate in our suite of Manhattan Arts Grants, Artist Residencies, and Professional Development programs to connect with peers and industry leaders, advance their creative practice, develop specific projects, and acquire a set of financial planning and business strategy tools to carry with them into the future.
Our robust network of partners and our integrated approach to fostering local neighborhood efforts spark public imagination, inspiring personal attachment and investment in NYC’s communities.
We believe that when artists receive support from both the public and private sectors, they are catalysts for social inclusion, resiliency, environmental sustainability, and economic vitality in the communities where they live and work.
Our residency programs provide support for US and international artists in Lower Manhattan and on Governors Island.
Manhattan Arts Grants
We offer grants for Manhattan-based artists, arts groups and organizations to engage their local communities.
We present free workshops on issues like business proficiency, financial resilience, and community engagement.
