Artist Statement

Greenpoint Creative Laboratory is a new center for community engagement, drawing together North Brooklyn's residents of varied backgrounds to reflect on media, education and art intervention. Projects address neighborhood concerns, such as oil contamination, greening efforts, development, and local economy.

Founded by Laura Chipley, Mary Jeys, and Sarah Nelson Wright, Greenpoint Creative Laboratory features programming initiatives by Brooklyn Torch Project, Electronic Social Club and The Newtown Creek Armada. During the week, resident artists/entrepreneurs use the space for coworking. On weekends, the space is dedicated to events, meetings, and classes for artists, community members, and emergent local organizations.
