GREENSPACENYC is a non-profit collaborative that develops and curates free educational programming, hands-on workshops, and public design projects that encourage dialogue, enliven public spaces, and promote the future of a more equitable and sustainable city.
Our public programs take place in a range of spaces from public parks to to community spaces to vacant storefronts. Each project is created in collaboration with volunteer–artists, designers, educators, activists, and the general public. The organization is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas, giving it its status as a 501(c)(3) and receives material sponsorship from Material for the Arts (NYC Office of Cultural Affairs).
CIVIC ART LAB
Civic Art Lab is a summer-long storefront in Bed-
Stuy, Brooklyn in collaboration with the Bridge Street
Development Corporation’s Pop-up Program. This
environmental, arts, and educational initiative calls on
neighbors to co-produce creative ways to share
skills and showcase recent cultural and environmental
initiatives happening locally. The goal is to amplify diverse voices and encourage future community engagement.
