Based in New York City, The People’s Creative Institute serves as a gymnasium for the imagination—an incubator where underserved and immigrant communities grow ever more resilient through interdependence, collective visioning, shared artistic practice, and leadership training. Developed with the people themselves, The Institute nurtures a program of fellowships to enable the creation of public-facing artwork, and thereby realize beautiful urban spaces through shared cultural knowledge and expertise.
We blaze an artful path towards self-determination for underserved and immigrant communities in every borough of New York City. We promote Democracy, and believe in an engaged, creative public.
We create beautiful public spaces alongside the people who use them.
What We Do
Together, we craft profound connections, nurturing the bonds that fortify communities. Our artistry fosters interdependence, a shared practice for the artistry of all.
