York Foundation for the Arts has announced the launch of a new program to
provide affordable workspace exclusively to NYFA-affiliated artists and
organizations. NYFA offers a creative environment with a staff of about thirty
working artists, writers, dancers, and playwrights. NYFA's offices are located
in Brooklyn (DUMBO), New York. The building is wheelchair accessible and air
program will provide a private workstation within the NYFA office space,
high-speed wireless Internet access, meeting space available by appointment,
free and discounted scanning, printing, and copying services, a fully equipped
kitchen, and individual phone service (available for additional fee).
To be eligible for the program, an applicant must be a NYFA-affiliated artist
or emerging organization. This includes past and current NYFA fellows, SOS or
BUILD recipients, Immigrant Artist Mentors or Mentees, and/or currently
sponsored artists and emerging organizations. Activity must be related to the
arts, literature, or cultural expression, but need not be the project for which
NYFA funding or sponsorship was received. Artists working in all genres --
including graphic designers, creative writers, journalists, and art historians
-- are welcome to apply.
Artists are accepted into the program on an initial thirty-day trial period,
after which NYFA may offer artists an option to renew on a monthly or quarterly
cycle. NYFA is offering a rate of $200 a month, or $550 for three months (after
the initial thirty-day period). Visit
