At the northern tip of Manhattan, a rich tapestry of cultures and the island’s largest swath of natural forest provide inspiration for a dynamic community of artists, film makers, musicians, and writers. Inwood Art Works aims to harness and promote the artistic energy of Inwood and its surrounding community with programs of events for visual arts, film, and stage.

What’s New

Inwood Art Works On Air
Since 2020, our weekly On Air podcasts have highlighted all the creative talent that calls Inwood and upper Manhattan home, from comedians and filmmakers to artists and musicians. With more than 100 episodes recorded so far, we invite you to celebrate the local creative talent with our Inwood Art Works On Air series.
Inwood Film Festival
Congratulations to all the recipients of the 2023-24 Inwood Art Works Filmmaker Fund! Check out their stories that we’re helping bring to the screen. More than 86% of the grant money this year will be awarded to women and minority filmmakers as part of our goal to reflect the diversity of New York City and the Uptown community.
