Become Greenpointers’ Studio Mate; Space Available at Dobbin Project Space

The amazing space that is the home of Greenpointers has a spot opening up for a new studio mate. I can honestly say that I love working there. The other residents are wonderful people and the space itself is great for co-working, but also if you have small events like art shows, screenings or readings.

Unique Workspace Opportunity In Storefront Gallery

$330 per month

Available: March 1st through Oct. 1st and beyond

Dobbin Project Space is a creative work and event space for artists, curators and programmers producing socially-engaged art and media. It was founded in September of 2012 by three socially engaged artists with interdisciplinary practices. All three co-founders work in the space. Additionally, we have three wonderful residents and are seeking a fourth.

Residents use the space as a shared art studio/co-working space Monday through Friday. On weekends, Dobbin Project Space hosts socially engaged art programming and events, including events by residents. We invite an artist, designer, curator, entrepreneur, community organizer, writer, or freelancer to join us starting March 1st, 2013.

The physical space is a storefront gallery with large white walls, ample light and wood floors. Walls slide to cover storage areas, leaving a beautiful work and event space. The gallery has two spaces: one room with street access and a large picture window and another large back gallery with windows facing a courtyard garden. There is on-site storage for all residents, multiple power outlets, track lighting, a private bathroom, microwave, fridge and modular work desks. There is room to host meetings.

The space is located in a unique studio complex called Dobbin Mews on Dobbin Street, situated between McCarren Park, Williamsburg and Greenpoint, nearby Nassau G and Bedford L trains. Resident rent is $330/month, including all utilities (heat, AC, Internet, electricity). Transportation: G train to Nassau, L train to Bedford Ave., B61 bus, B43 Bus.

The new resident must commit through Oct. 1st, 2013, with potential to extend.
