Mission Statement

chashama’s mission is to support creativity in New York City by repurposing vacant properties; recycling them as artist work and show spaces, granting them at free or highly-subsidized rates, and invigorating the surrounding community with an influx of innovative programs, culture, creativity and commerce.


Description

By converting buildings in transition, we invest in neighborhoods, foster artists and art making, and sustain a vast range of creativity and philosophies. chashama’s spaces encourage priceless cultural and economic development by bringing the creative community into a variety of neighborhoods, while providing artists access to the alliances chashama has formed with borough, city, state and federal agencies. Our services and activities cultivate cohesive environments through outreach and interaction with area youth programs, schools, local community boards, small businesses, property owners, arts organizations, economic development corporations and government entities - making chashama an integral thread in the fabric of that region.


Because our locations are in a range of areas, from high-volume traffic and commerce districts to under-resourced and culturally underserved areas, each chashama venue brings with it unique iterations of "community."
