Continuing a longstanding tradition of communal eating, The Laundromat Project will hold its first collaborative potluck dinner on March 27th with Residency Unlimited. The potluck will be an opportunity for residents from Residency Unlimited’s program to meet and exchange ideas with alumni of The Laundromat Project's Create Change Program, which is a public art program developed to connect communities and artists in meaningful ways. The program recognizes that artists and the roles they play within their own communities ultimately improve the holistic quality of life in New York City’s diverse communities, particularly (though not exclusively) in those of color and modest income.

The Laundromat Project has a longstanding relationship with potlucks as a dynamic way to build community as an organization. Overall they bring art, artists, and arts programming into laundromats and other everyday spaces, thus amplifying the creativity that already exists within communities to build community networks, solve problems, and enhance our sense of ownership in the places where we live, work, and grow.
