Building for the Arts


People, Places, Possibilities

We expand access to the performing arts by providing creative space, learning opportunities, and hubs for artistic connection.


We present vibrant arts initiatives to communities and neighborhoods in New York and other U.S. cities, elevating people and places to serve their greatest purpose.  Our two signature projects, Theatre Row and Music and the Brain, nurture emerging artists, audiences, and youth with a focus on accessibility and inclusion. Building for the Arts NY, Inc. is a non-profit.


This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
