Support for Free Performances in NYC Neighborhood Parks, Plazas and Gardens

 

Thanks to generous support from the New York Community Trust and Con Edison’s Arts Alfresco Series, the new GREEN / ARTS LIVE NYC program was able to provide microgrants and production support to 45 grantees to ensure that our city’s most under-resourced communities have the opportunity to benefit from free performing arts and workshops in their neighborhood parks, plazas and community gardens this summer and fall.

 

GREEN / ARTS LIVE NYC was designed to equitably provide financial, consulting and production support to NYC artists, arts groups, cultural, and community-based organizations, and volunteer stewardship groups throughout the five boroughs. Grants will provide support and infrastructure needed to present, perform, and produce cultural programs outdoors, in local parks, plazas and community gardens. 

 

We are excited to announce the 2021 grantees:
