As part of our Monthly Storytelling Series, we raise awareness of and funds for a local non-profit, the community-based organizations that keep our New York neighborhoods thriving.
October’s Featured Partner:
October’s non-profit partner, The Bushwick Starr has given a platform to artists like Heather Christian, Dave Malloy, Raja Feather Kelly, The Mad Ones, and countless more.
The Bushwick Starr aims to be a thriving cultural institution rooted in its founding mission to nurture artists in creating their most ground-breaking work, while also exemplifying the idea that affordable, equal access art can obliterate boundaries of class and cultural divides, and that live theater is essential in preserving our generation’s ability to connect, engage, and participate in the present moment.
Through serving both emerging and established artists, and building a strong and meaningful bond with our local schools and community, the Starr has become a pillar of the New York City cultural map and a trusted theater where people can experience new, high quality work in a warm, intimate environment. The Bushwick Starr develops new work by a highly curated group of emerging and established performing artists that challenge traditional perceptions of theater and performance.
Believing in the power of art to communicate in surprising ways, the work they present is bold, new, and daring, often melding disciplines, and always full of ideas. They provide a space that houses and ignites the conversation around intersecting communities and creates a cultural bridge through ongoing community programs and events.
