With artists from all genres in each showcase, RAW events come together to form an amazing one-night circus of creativity. These showcases occur once a month in each city location. The RAW season runs from February-October and comes to an extravagant end with an indie arts awards show RAWards in Hollywood.

Lott CDC’s mission to help house New Yorkers in need has resulted in the development of 27 buildings offering almost 700 affordable rental apartments, from studios to three-bedrooms. Over the past twenty five years, Lott has renovated and redeveloped twenty two vacant and underutilized buildings to provide much-needed housing. This work has rescued entire blocks from the blighting effects of abandonment and decay and has been instrumental in sparking the revitalization of Northern Manhattan. In addition, Lott has built five new buildings, including three exclusively for the seniors. In todays changing neighborhoods of East and Central Harlem, an influx of for-profit development is making the need for affordable housing even more critical. Lott CDC continues to expand the opportunities it can offer New Yorkers in need.

Lott is currently seeking an energetic and highly skilled Project Manager to work closely with the Executive Director, Director of Property Management, Development & Sustainability Project Manager, and Senior Accountant on a diverse array of initiatives. The Project Manager will assist the Executive Director in managing Lott’s main office and in managing communications with the organization’s fifteen-member Board of Directors. The Project Manager will also work closely with the Senior Accountant on financial issues and take a lead role in grants management for the organization. Additionally, based on his/her experience, skills, and interests, the Project Manager will work with the senior staff on other organizational priorities.
