The Laundromat Project's Create Change artist development program connects artists, organizers, and communities in meaningful ways, creating a corps of creative community leaders. Each year we select up to 20 multi-racial, multi-disciplinary changemakers living in New York City to participate and collectively produce a total of eight projects through our Create Change Fellowships and Residencies. Here's why you should consider applying:

  • There is no application fee
  • Participating in a Fellowship is free of charge
  • Residencies come with a $7,500 honorarium and a production budget of $2,500

Create Change is made possible in part through the generosity of The Andrew Mellon Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation, The Jerome Foundation, and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Create Change participants acquire necessary practical and ethical tools to critically examine the role that arts and culture have in community change. This program centers the experiences of people of color and their communities. Create Change further provides participants with a community of support, opportunities to build networks and the resources they need to further develop their creative practices and positively impact the communities where they live, work, and grow.



The Laundromat Project brings art, artists, and arts programming into laundromats and other everyday spaces, thus amplifying the creativity that already exists within communities to build community networks, solve problems, and enhance our sense of ownership in the places where we live, work, and grow.
