Bridging the Divide: ArtBridge @ NYCHA

Bridging the Divide is an ongoing series of community-engaged artist fellowships at New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) developments throughout NYC. NYCHA provides affordable housing for 400,000 lower-income New Yorkers. Through this program, artists engage with residents via several months of workshops. Resulting from this engagement, artists create artworks that amplify the voices of residents — their cultures, histories, talents, challenges, joys, etc. The resulting exhibitions are displayed at hundreds of feet long, on the construction fencing that surrounds the NYCHA development.

If you are a NYCHA resident and would like this program to come to your development, please email us: info@art-bridge.org
