The Collective NY

STATUS: Ongoing


Since its inception, The Collective NY theatre and film production company has made seats available at every performance to New Yorkers who cannot afford a ticket to quality, professional theatre, or do not know that such opportunities exist. With & About is working with The Collective leadership to more meaningfully activate the organization’s commitment to “radical access to the arts”. With the support of partnering agencies, The Collective will use its 2018 season to break down barriers like never before. We are working together to fundraise for, partner with, and produce a “parents night out” event for a local family homeless shelter. The goal is to mitigate obstacles all parents, but especially those surviving poverty-related hardships, face when attempting to take time for themselves. Childcare and entertainment, transportation, tickets and refreshments will be accounted for to insure families who rarely have access to the arts will get to experience live, professional theatre.  We are partnered in making the theatre an inclusive space for all.
