The Laundromat Project

The Laundromat Project (LP) advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities. We envision a world in which artists and neighbors in communities of color work together to unleash the power of creativity to transform lives. We make sustained investments in growing a community of multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists and neighbors committed to societal change by supporting their art-making, community-building, and leadership development. Over the past 18 years, the LP has supported over 200 artists through its flagship Create Change Residency and Fellowship programs. The Create Change programs have evolved into a leading artist-development model that nourishes creative leaders with opportunities to engage both theory and practice in order to support the development of community-responsive projects that make use of artists’ and cultural workers’ unique social space and location.
