Who Are We?

QNS Collaborative is a community organization in Queens, NY that centers the needs of makers, artists, and other creative groups throughout the borough. In our storefront, QNSC uplifts creators by providing them with space to sell their work, promotion for their businesses, and a way for them to connect on a personal and professional level with their creative neighbors. 

Behind the scenes, QNSC works with other local organizers and activist groups to bring their voices and causes to the forefront. As part of our involvement in the success of ALL of our neighbors, QNSC also offers sliding-scale membership and other monetary assistance in an effort to prioritize the inclusion of more immigrant, LBGTQIA+, BIPOC, differently-abled and women-centered creators in our space.

But our hope is that our efforts won’t end there. QNSC is in a crucial period of transition as we move on from our temporary home on Astoria Boulevard and look to expand into a larger space that can provide a more robust set of resources, including more in-person workshops, shared studio space, a low-cost secondhand supply shop (and more!)

The QNSC organizing team is deeply invested in making this dream a reality for Queens and believes that it’s been a long-time coming for a space like this to exist not across the city, but right here in our backyard. Interested in helping make it happen?
