“Through the challenges of this past year, we have made a commitment to come together every week to act as a structure and support for one another, our businesses and our community. This festival is the direct result of hours and hours of conversation, over the months. who informed our decision-making processes, individually and collectively, enabled our continued growth during difficult times and deepened our commitment to our field and our city. This festival is a celebration of the glory of our art and the power of unity. “

The festival is presented as part of Restart Stages, a program of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), which activates the outdoor space through artistic and community initiatives that talk about our current moment and reimagines the culture engagement in public space for a new era.
