Stay in New York
The Affordable Workspace Conference
Queens Museum
Flushing Meadows, Corona Park
June 27, 12:00 PM to 5:30 PM

RSVP now and reserve your free lunch.

Is your rent too high? Is your landlord unreasonable? Do you want to do something about it?

Attend Stay in New York, an affordable workspace conference for visual artists organized by Art F City and launched in partnership with the Queens Museum. The conference aims to give creative New Yorkers the tools to help create better neighborhoods, find and keep their rents low, and even purchase real estate and studio space.

Knowledge is power. This conference includes:

  • Three panel discussions on community organizing, ownership, and tenant’s rights. Speakers include Chloe Bass, Nat Roe, Jenny Dubnau, Deborah Brown, Shawn McLearen, William Powhida, and more.
  • A free picnic lunch for the first 100 RSVPs.
  • Film screenings and opportunities to get advice on workspace concerns from arts-friendly professionals such as lawyers and realtors.
  • A keynote delivered by one city’s most influential cultural figures to be announced along with other special activities.
Let’s make sure that the cultural workers who have made New York so great don’t become casualties of the city’s growing pains. Join us. Talk, plot, and make some noise. RSVP now.


This conference is, in part, the result of several small group sessions conducted in partnership with Skowhegan. Stay in New York is made possible with support from The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.

I like that once you’re signed up for the event, the eventbrite confirmation says “You’re going to Stay in New York”!

Oh, that’s so nice! I haven’t seen that notification because I’m the host.
