Community Engagement & Partnerships

Powerhouse envisions a society in which creative expression is celebrated and supported as central to everyone’s well-being and to the health of any community.

We are a mission-aligned hub of artists and fabricators who make art and learn from each other. As we open to the surrounding neighborhoods, and to New York City more broadly, we engage the imaginations of our neighbors and colleagues in planning how Powerhouse can support their creative lives and the vitality of their neighborhoods.

In addition to hosting public events and affordable art making facilities, we provide sustaining wage-earning career internships for young adults committed to working in creative manufacturing and arts administration.
