LMCC empowers artists and small arts groups by offering space, financial resources, and professional and creative development opportunities. We support artists working in all disciplines in order to advance and sustain their practices and careers. Our public engagement initiatives — including the River To River Festival — engage, provoke, and transform audiences. We celebrate cultural experiences that are representative of all stages of the creative process and present them for free in unexpected places.

With your support, we can continue to empower the creative voices that are the heart and soul of New York City’s diverse communities.
