-Small-scale photography sessions and other creative projects
-Auditions
-Open rehearsals
-Mission-driven staff retreats
-Community meetings

Evaluation Criteria
Rental requests will be evaluated for the following criteria:


VALUES ALIGNMENT

Equity & Inclusion
Our community access program seeks to provide space for underrepresented communities. Do you have a project that represents the identities or cultural practices of your community? Do you have a project that amplifies the voices of your community?

Community Vitality
We are dedicated to operating spaces that reflect the needs of neighborhood residents. Does the rental request take a leadership role in community organizing, community development and/or community art-making? Successful rental requests are committed to providing platforms and resources for artists, cultural workers and neighborhood residents to connect, learn, share and engage with one another.


LOGISTICS

-Spaceworks is a shared working environment. Can the rental request exist in harmony with creatives working in our spaces?
-Does the rental request activate underutilized, off-peak* times?
-Is the proposed rental logistically possible given the limitations of the space, the resources and support available to the renter and the plan proposed?


ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Non-Rehearsal
This is not the application for rehearsal space. If you're interested in rehearsal rentals, please submit your request for a free Spaceworks Card here: spaceworksnyc.org/card.

Communal Space
-Spaceworks facilities are not staffed. Rentals that require Spaceworks staff presence will incur additional fees.
-The communal spaces are shared with other creatives and renters. Renters are required to bring their own support staff and a responsible for cleaning and restoring the room after their rental.
-Some rentals require more than one space to minimize impact on other people working in the space (for example: large auditions).

Off-Peak Times
Recurring Community Access Rentals are generally available during off-peak times only.

*Peak hours: Weekdays 10am - 2pm & 6pm - 10pm; Weekends 10am - 8pm.
