Swing Space is a project-based residency program that places visual and performing artists and arts groups in space for the development and presentation of new projects. Since its launch in 2005, Swing Space has placed over 1,000 artists in more than 20 different locations throughout Lower Manhattan and on Governors Island all generously provided by the Downtown real estate community and LMCC's programming partners. Swing Space is designed to address short-term space needs for a wide range of projects and to encourage creative, experimental, and collaborative approaches to artistic practice in unconventional spaces.
