Make an impact today!

Donating right now will enable us to support more NYU artists this year.

Student and alumni artists often struggle to find the same early-career support that is available to their peers in fields like science and business. And lacking a clear employment pipeline or recruiting process, making the transition from the academic environment to practicing artist can seem especially challenging.

The NYU Production Lab exists to help bridge that gap, by providing workshops and opportunities to support emerging artists. Please consider helping support our pathbreaking work by donating to our Artist Fund! By contributing, you enable us to continue offering the programs that make such a crucial difference for rising NYU creatives, including:

– Workshops with industry leaders across the arts and entertainment, where students and recent alums can explore new career paths and learn how their industries really work

– Networking events for artists across disciplines, where they can meet collaborators and share mutual support

– Fellowships for rising NYU artists, that support professionalization and the creation of new work.

Thanks so much for visiting our page. Your support is crucial to us as we expand our offerings, and support the next generation of artists at NYU!

The NYU Production Lab is a development center whose mission is to support the next generation of artists in designing and launching thriving careers in their industries. The Lab serves as an experiential-learning bridge for students navigating the transition from an academic classroom to their professional field. The lab’s approach is two fold; a creative incubator across disciplines that provides mentorship, funding and space for works in development and professional development opportunities through career coaching, workshops and student assistantships. These opportunities dynamically assist students in creating a trajectory for their growth and understanding of the artistic fields through experiential learning.

The production lab aims to serve students and new alums on all stages and scope of the creative journey with a commitment to diversity and intent to foster an inclusive artistic industry. The Production Lab strives to be at the forefront of cultural entrepreneurship, preparing today’s emerging artists for the jobs of tomorrow and expanding the arts ecosystem.
