The nine-month interdisciplinary program provides emerging artists 24-7 access to studios in Lower Manhattan, professional development workshops, artist talks, and more.

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s (LMCC) newest cohort of Workspace Residents, its first in-person iteration since Covid, as well as the next Open Call for the 2023-2024 cohort that will launch in March.

Featured as a nine-month studio-based residency program, Workspace invites artists and curators across disciplines to convene in a setting where experimentation, creative risk-taking, learning and skill-sharing are championed.

Workspace is a foundational program in LMCC’s 20-year track record of partnering with corporations in Lower Manhattan to activate vacant space and transform them into artist studios. Through its artist residency programs, LMCC redefines what it means to “work” in Lower Manhattan, responding directly to the immediate needs of the artistic community, and promoting the creation, development and presentation of exciting and innovative new work.

The ‘22-’23 Workspace residents are Sherese Francis, nia love, Julia Izumi, Caroline Garcia, David J Wilson, Rachelle Dang, Matthew Sandager, Jessica Lagunas, Firoz Mahmud, Anu Jindal and Gabriel Garcia Roman

For its ‘22-’23 cohort, LMCC brings together artists whose practices span a range of disciplines, including the visual arts, literary arts and performing arts. The many disciplines represented creates a dynamic exchange between artists about their practices, cultures and histories from both individual and collective perspectives. 

Residents are provided with 24-7 access to studio spaces and facilities housed in 7,172 square feet of prime Lower Manhattan real estate on the 12th floor of 101 Greenwich. Beyond artist studios, Workspace facilities include meeting rooms, common areas and a dance floor/rehearsal space.
