The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center Inc. (The Clemente) is a Puerto Rican/Latino cultural institution that has demonstrated a broad-minded cultural vision and a collaborative philosophy. While The Clemente’s mission is focused on the cultivation, presentation, and preservation of Puerto Rican and Latino culture, it is equally determined to operate in a multi-cultural and inclusive manner, housing and promoting artists and performance events that fully reflect the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side and the city as a whole.
The Clemente offers 46 subsidized visual arts studio spaces, some single, some multi-occupant, and some rotating, and 12 studio/offices for not-for-profit performing arts and educational organizations, also subsidized. The Clemente also offers artist residences, fellowships, and exhibitions, all accessible through open calls and collaborative partnerships with art collectives and cultural organizations.
