Group Residency at NWS

Space to Regroup and Organize.

Group Residency is a program dedicated to providing space for a rich variety of groups and organizations alongside original events taking place at New Women Space. 

Group Residencies at New Women Space are given access to dedicated time and space on a once per month basis

Group residencies rotate on a four month term trimester to ensure diversity of programming and equal opportunity for other groups to apply for space. 


Group Residency Requirements

Mission Aligned

Groups at NWS are expected to have a mission and purpose-driven gathering that aligns with NWS values around women supporting women, cultivation of ideas, ambitions and pursuits of women of all experiences, and providing visibility to under-represented voices.

Locally Based

Groups at NWS are expected to be locally based or have active and operating chapters within the five boroughs of New York City. We wish to stimulate and create more meaningful in-person gatherings for the purpose of true community building.

Impact

Groups are expected to help contribute to growing awareness around New Women Space. Group residents should have an established following to ensure that events are well attended.
