“I was inspired by how the WeWork model could be applied to [the] arts community because the artist is the original start up,” said Rachel Berger, founder, The Artist Co-op, in a statement. “We need well-designed space that supports the collaborative work that goes on behind the scenes to stay organized, produce projects, build relationships, and manage the overall creative process.”
The June 7-10 launch will feature a series of free events at the Center for Social Innovation, 601 W. 26th St. Among the offerings are The Work of an Actor June 7 at 6 PM featuring Raul Castillo, Marin Ireland and Florencia Lozano; Dinner Labs: Diversity in the Performing Arts June 8 at 7 PM, a dialogue with NY Deaf Theatre, Girl Be Heard, Fire This Time and Diana Oh, moderated by Lauren Whitehead; and more.
