Looking for a space for your next event?
Rent the performance space at The Asian American Writers’ Workshop. The site of the Workshop’s weekly readings, our space is available for a variety of functions: conferences, meetings, speeches, receptions, fund-raising events, performances, literary readings, benefits, book parties, and more.
Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, our performance space has featured performances and readings by such luminaries as Law & Order actor B.D. Wong, New York Times reporter Jennifer 8 Lee, former Poet Laureate of Queens Ishle Yi Park, and others. Featuring southern exposure along three giant windows, eight stylish hanging lamps and hardwood floors, the space is an approximately 600 square feet loft space that can safely accommodate 75 guests. The space also features access to two restrooms, a break-room kitchen, Internet access, a freight elevator, folding chairs, sound system, lighting, and a projector setup.
The space has been newly designed thanks to a collaboration with Parsons The New School of Design, Design Within Reach Annex, and Tug Studios’s Goil Amornvivat, the star of Bravo’s Top Design and TLC’s Trading Spaces. Parsons students spent a semester designing new interiors for the Workshop as their class project and three students—Nina Barnieh, Holly McWhorter, and Jessica Wu—led the construction and implementation of the final design. Consequently, our location has been newly painted and features brand new furniture by Design Within Reach Annex. Our space’s chic modern look is appropriate for professional events, while still possessing the welcoming atmosphere of a community nonprofit group.
