The Artist Co-op Pop Up, a shared workspace for performing artists, will launch June 7-10 in Manhattan. The co-op hopes to unite New York City’s actors directors, dancers, playwrights and more with programs and services to support the performing arts community.
“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.
