The Gowanus Studio Space

The Gowanus Studio Space (GSS) offers space, equipment and support to emerging designers, artists and craftspeople. Located in the historically industrial neighborhood along the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, GSS houses a large industrial arts workshop as well as private studios and exhibition space. By providing training, workspace, tools and resources, GSS encourages cross-pollination between the art/design communities; supports new businesses and design projects; and is a vital arts resource for the surrounding community. For the last 2.5 years, I have served as the Publications and Information Manager: I design, maintain, and produce materials for print, exhibition, and screen. I disseminate, organize and maintain meeting notes and internal communications.
