NO LONGER EMPTY WINS NEA AWARD
A 5-YEAR MILESTONE
"NYC Office of Public Imagination" design intervention in the Lower East Side, Fall 2013.
No Longer Empty's project, Living Labs: NYC, is one of 886 nonprofit endeavors nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. A joint project uniting The New School Parsons DESIS Lab with No Longer Empty, as well as designers, artists, urbanists, and academics, Living Labs will test and advocate for new forms of community collaboration and cultural/civic engagement in order to propose solutions to urban challenges including education, childcare, and underdeveloped space. Living Labs completed its first year of participatory investigations and art/design interventions in the Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood and will shift its focus to Harlem in June 2014. Living Labs is part of The New School Collaboratory, supported in part by the Rockefeller Foundation.
"These NEA-supported projects will not only have a positive impact on local economies," says NEA Acting Chairman Joan Shigekawa, "but will also provide opportunities for people of all ages to participate in the arts, help our communities to become more vibrant, and support our nation's artists as they contribute to our cultural landscape."
