The People’s Laundromat Theater

About the Project

The People’s Laundromat Theater converted a Harlem laundromat into an independent theater during the course of the Create Change residency. The project provided opportunities for laundromat patrons to offer feedback to 30+ contributing artists/media producers, to participate in The People’s Wash + Fold Film Club, and get their own “celebrity-shine-on” at a red-carpet inspired closing party.
