About Chashama

Chashama was founded in 1995 by Anita Durst to celebrate the legacy of theatre visionary Reza Abdoh. Chashama's initial focus was on the production and presentation of new theatre. Recognizing that a lack of affordable space was the biggest threat to sustaining a diverse cultural environment in New York City, we began to work toward securing studio and presentation space in Midtown Manhattan for struggling artists by partnering with Property Owners that provide unused space to Chashama. In the first decade, Chashama secured seven locations on 42nd street between 6th and Broadway, presenting over 700 shows.

Since then, Chashama has moved from midtown Manhattan to the five boroughs and beyond and has transformed unused real estate for 30,000 creatives into artist work and presentation space, small businesses and free art classes. Currently, Chashama presents 150 events a year, has workspace for 120 artists, and has developed 80 workshops in underserved communities.
