Founded in 2005, The Laundromat Project (The LP) brings art, artists, and arts programming to community spaces, thus amplifying the creativity that already exists within communities to build networks, solve problems, and enhance their sense of ownership in the places where they live, work, and grow. In its first decade, The LP has directly invested nearly $700,000 in 150 multi-racial, multi-generational, and multi-disciplinary artists, 62 innovative public art projects, three diverse anchor neighbors, one creative community hub, and 34,000 New Yorkers, equipping and emboldening them as creative change agents in their own communities. The LP is committed to communities of color and those living on modest incomes, and while it is active citywide, its work is most deeply anchored in three diverse NYC neighborhoods: Bedford-Stuyvesant, Harlem, and Hunts Point. Over the long-term, The LP looks to foster and support creative community leaders who are empowered by, committed to, and fully conversant in community-attuned art practices.
