The Attic was founded by Laura Gold and Anna Loyd Bradshaw, pictured here at the first ever Attic community meeting, at The Artist Co-Op, in New York in 2017. Laura is a producer and a writer and Anna is a writer and director. After collaborating on a number of different projects, and many months of creative conversations, the concept for a new community initiative began to form.
Anna and Laura both felt a great need for a supportive and nurturing community in New York; a place where individuals could simply come and be themselves, whether that meant sitting in silence, meeting a new collaborator, or sharing a cup of coffee in a blanket fort. Every aspect of this new initiative was based around the need for an open, supportive and creative community for artists and art appreciators alike, one where any and all would be welcome… and so The Attic was born.
