Workspace offers...

Program Update

We are changing our residency programs slightly and will be updating this page by September 1 with complete details about what a Workspace residency will provide to visual, new media, performing artists, and writers.

If you have not already done so, please sign up for our Artist Opportunities list to receive monthly emails about upcoming Artist Residency opportunities, Professional Development workshops, and Grants for Manhattan based artists.

Studio Space

Private or semi-private studio space, within a larger shared space, with 24/7 access. Individual studio spaces are approximately 150–300 square feet, equipped with a desk, chair, and basic overhead lighting. Electricity and wireless internet are provided. Heat and air conditioning are provided seasonally during regular business hours. (Housing is not provided).


A one-time stipend of approximately $1,000 is provided, depending on available funds. (There is NOT a monthly living or housing stipend).

Professional Development

Artists- and writers-in-residence meet weekly as a group Tuesday evenings for Salon Evenings. Salon Evenings take different forms, including individual studio visits with arts and literary professionals, workshops on practical issues, artist talks and readings, as well as potluck dinners. See Salon Guests for a complete list of past guests.

All artists- and writers-in-residence are required to participate in Salon Evenings each week.
