Didn’t find anything? No worries! Happy to take your items or give them back for next time.
Can’t get enough? Become a member and partake in unlimited swapping!
What if I bring more than I take?
We are working on creating a system that keeps track of your swap items. Thanks for your patience as we experiment with different swap systems.
What if I take more than I brought?
No worries! We aren’t super strict. We will limit the amount you take to 10 items.
Where do unswappable items go?
We have numerous partners who help us navigate where items can be recycled, reused, and repurposed. Thank you to Wearable Collections, Green Textile Recycling, Thred UP, and the Department of Sanitation/Donate NYC for providing solutions to textile waste.
Chashama supports artists by partnering with property owners to transform dormant real estate into space to create, present, and connect, with the mission to increase equity and bolster access to the arts. For over two decades Chashama has played a central role in sustaining New York’s vibrant artistic community by giving space to 20,000 artists, hosting 4,000 public art events, providing 1,500 free art classes in under-resourced communities, and reaching an audience of nearly a million. Chashama was founded in 1995 by Artistic Director Anita Durst to remedy what she observed to be the greatest threat artists faced: the lack of affordable space. Since its inception Chashama has worked collaboratively with artists, property owners, and the New York community to activate space and support under-resourced communities, establishing itself as a well-regarded cultural force on a mission to increase access to the arts for all.
