The Laundromat Project , which recently relocated its headquarters from Brooklyn to the Bronx, is a nonprofit focused on providing low-income neighborhoods with a chance to experience and create art in their local laundromats.
Here’s info about their upcoming Professional Development Fellowship:
The Laundromat Project is now accepting online applications for our Professional Development Fellowship program. The deadline for submitting your full application is Monday, March 4 at 11:59 p.m. Please visit our website to read the guidelines and access the application form.
The fellowship offers a six-month series of bi-weekly professional development workshops for artists interested in developing or deepening their practice of making socially relevant, socially- engaged art. Up to 15 fellows will meet with a diverse roster of artists, activists, arts professionals, curators, funders, and change agents offering strategies for creating and sustaining work that overlaps both the arts and social change sectors.
To participate in this program, artists should have a demonstrated creative practice, be interested in (or already) making socially-engaged art, live in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area (including New Jersey and Connecticut) and be at least 18 years of age.
