miLES (Made in the Lower East Side), a local group whose mission is to “open up previously unused storefronts to new possibilities,” has recently announced that they have partnered with the Fourth Arts Block to open the first miLES storefront.

Working with residents, artists, businesses and landlords in the Lower East Side to identify, program and fill underused spaces, miLES turns these spaces into vibrant community hubs for working, learning, connecting, and starting up new projects.

Their new space, FABWORKS, will open April 1 for a three-month period. Located at the site of the recently vacated FAB Café at 75 East Fourth Street, FABWORKS will be hosting an array of programs including co-working on weekdays, classes and events on weeknights, and pop-up shops on the weekend.

Those who are interested can go to the miLES website to apply as a co-working member. One can also join as a free miLES basic member to host classes, events, or pop-up shops.

Early application deadline for co-working members is this Monday March 11 (early applications have a higher chance of getting selected).
