Dur­ing the spring, sum­mer and ear­ly fall months, over two dozen arts, cul­ture and edu­ca­tion orga­ni­za­tions uti­lize space inside Gov­er­nors Island’s his­toric for­mer mil­i­tary hous­es through Gov­er­nors Island Arts’ annu­al Orga­ni­za­tions in Res­i­dence pro­gram — pre­sent­ing exhi­bi­tions, hold­ing free pub­lic pro­grams and host­ing artist res­i­den­cies. Over the next decade, the City of New York and the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island will invest in evolv­ing this sea­son­al pro­gram into year-round per­ma­nent homes for cul­tur­al orga­ni­za­tions on Gov­er­nors Island. 

Organizations in Residence will return in Spring 2023
