LMCC's Swing Space Program! Free space for artists!

Tue Jan 10, 2006 10:20

Swing Space is a new initiative of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Working in partnership with area landlords, LMCC makes vacant space downtown available to artists, curators and arts organizations on a temporary basis at no cost.

The program is designed to address the short-term space needs for a range of projects, and to encourage creative, experimental and collaborative approaches to artistic practice in unconventional spaces. Project stipends ranging from $300 to $3000 are provided to support project costs! Recent Swing Space grantees include THE THING, National Theater of the United States of America, Jessica Irish, and Noah Fischer.

Applications are accepted and reviewed in the following project categories:
- Studio space
- Rehearsal space
- Installation for public presentation
- Curated exhibitions for public presentation
- Temporary office space

LMCC is also accepting applications for the 15 Nassau Program, which provides space for public programs and performances. Recent 15 Nassau grantees include Pablo Helguera/PERFORMA 05, Koosil-Ja Hwang, and Artists Alliance.

Deadline: February 21, 2006, 5:00 PM.

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council is currently accepting applications for Swing Space, a program that makes vacant space downtown available to artists, curators and arts organizations on a temporary basis at no cost. You can apply for studio, rehearsal, or office space or to present a curated exhibition, installation, or performance.

We're also accepting applications for 15 Nassau, LMCC's new temporary programming venue located in a beautiful former bank in the Financial District. Artists and arts groups can apply to exhibit window installations or to present a public program (eligible programs include readings, screenings, informal performances, concerts, panel discussions, etc.).

Swing Space and 15 Nassau applicants are eligible for small stipends to support project costs. Both progams are open to individual visual, performing, and new media artists; dance and theater companies; cultural organizations; and curators. Please see program guidelines for specific eligibility requirements. Swing Space and 15 Nassau are made possible by the generous support of the September 11th Fund.
