"From Crisis to Creation"
An Inspiring Night!

On Monday, February 9, 2015 representatives of 16 cultural organizations throughout the boroughs spoke to a mighty crowd of independent theater practitioners and allies. Some organizations represented issues of diversity and some were service institutions, but many had a story of money drying up after the 2008 financial crisis. And what united us, in the words of TERESA EYRING (Executive Director of TCG), is acting as “first responders, a brain trust when crisis occurs” to lead the charge of creativity, “adaptability and resilience”.

Mayor De Blasio: Affordable Housing for Artists!

According to WNYC, Bill De Blasio is going to be including live-work spaces for artists as part of his affordable housing plan.

We at the League of Independent Theater have been fighting for this since before the previous election, and endorsed a raft of city council people who agreed to take up this fight. We're excited to see this major acknowledgment of the need to support the living and working conditions of artists (including performing artists) in order to keep this city vibrant.

This is only the very beginning in a long campaign to get this and more, but this is an exciting first step in that road.
