INVESTED IN COMMUNITY
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) empowers artists by providing them with networks, resources, and support, to create vibrant, sustainable communities in Lower Manhattan and beyond.
In 2017, LMCC will present more than 60 days of free arts and cultural experiences – including our flagship River To River Festival – which engage more than 100,000 audience members; host more than 100 artists in our residency programs; award more than $650,000 in grants to artists and small arts organizations; and provide artists with valuable professional development opportunities.
The combination of LMCC’s investment in individual artists and small arts groups, our robust network of partners in the public and private sectors, and our integrated approach to fostering local neighborhood efforts, aims to spark public imagination as well as inspire personal attachment and investment in NYC’s communities.
To create a fertile and nurturing environment for artists and arts groups, enlivening public spaces with free programs in the visual, performing, and new media arts, and to provide leadership in cultural planning and advocacy.
