LabWorks Application

New Victory LabWorks is for NYC-based artists of color creating original work for kids and families. We welcome and uplift all artists of color, including those who identify as LGBTQIA+ and who identify as disabled. As an artistic home for artists of all disciplines, New Victory LabWorks explores, devises and reimagines what theater for families can be.

Applications are now closed. The deadline to apply was February 5, 2024. Applications for the 2025-26 season will open in Winter 2025.

Once all applications are reviewed, a select group of applicants will be contacted to participate in an interview with members of the New Victory Artistic Programming staff. From there, final applicants will be notified of their acceptance. All applicants will receive notification of final decisions. No phone calls, please.
