About Freelancers Hub

Freelancers Hub is currently a virtual community space designed to help New York City's freelancers thrive! Join us for free educational workshops, legal and financial clinics, benefits assistance, and community events.

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP, which has been home to the Freelancers Hub since our inception in 2018, has made the difficult decision to permanently close its doors. The good news is that our work persists. Take a look at our upcoming event schedule to find a workshop or course that supports where you are in your freelance career.

When we can ensure the safety of our community, we will explore new locations for the Freelancers Hub. In the meantime, we hope you’ll join us online.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not offering coworking space or service at this time.
