Programs

Our Workspace Program

chashama’s Workspace program, the largest artist studio residency in New York City, provides subsidized studio space to 126 New York City based artists. The Workspace program evolved from chashama’s original, central mission of giving space to create to New York City-based artists. Studios range in size from under 200 square feet to over 400 square feet, and are rented to participating artists at up to 90% below market rates. In 2007 chashama expanded into long-term studio hubs in Harlem and the Brooklyn Army Terminal, in Sunset Park, which together with six smaller complexes in Jamaica, Ridgewood, and Far Rockaway, Queens, and Midtown Manhattan comprise the 126 individual studio spaces.

chashama’s studio hubs contain exhibition and common spaces, small kitchen areas, and space for light construction work. In addition to affordable studio space, Workspace supports artists in all aspects of their creative and professional development through exhibition opportunities, annual open studios events, a visiting curators program, an online registry, professional development workshops, and access to Materials for the Arts.
