Chashama was founded in 1995 in response to the  lack of affordable space for emerging artists in New York City. Since then Chashama has provided space to create and present for 15,000 artists. Chashama partners with property owners to re-purpose unused space allowing artists and the communities in which we are engaged to flourish.

Chashama supports artists through the following programs:

Workspace Program
