Update - Creative Space Program 

As of January 31, 2023, the Creative Space Program has served 332 member companies that have rented over 34,000 hours of subsidized studio space from A.R.T./New York since July 2022. We are delighted to have supported the development of so many new works for the stage and are encouraged by the robust creative output of our membership. This increased demand from our members has exhausted the available subsidy for the remainder of FY23. We anticipate that we will resume offering the Creative Space Program subsidy on July 1, 2023. Please get in touch with us at [email protected] with any questions.
