About Us

chashama is dedicated to supporting emerging and underrepresented artists and to preserving the diversity and dynamism of New York City's cultural landscape.

chashama supports artists by providing them with one of the most elusive commodities in New York City: space to create. chashama works with landlords and developers to identify underutilized real estate which the owner is willing to donate on a short-term, temporary basis, preferring to see underutilized spaces put to good use, looked after and maintained while they are awaiting commercial tenants.

chashama converts these spaces into temporary theaters, galleries, artist studios and rehearsal spaces. We then invite artists to use them for free or at highly subsidized rates.

New York's cultural landscape is kept diverse and dynamic, neighborhoods are safer and more lively, and artists are able to live and work in New York City.

Since 1995, chashama has worked with many real estate owners, including Rockrose, The Durst Organization, Newmark Knight Frank, Forest City Ratner, George Comfort & Sons, Brause Realty, C & K Properties and HEC Real Estate.
