“The generous spread [River To River], offered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, is one of the perks of sticking around — or coming to visit — New York in the summer. All performances are free, and most are held outdoors, in a variety of spaces south of Chambers Street and on Governors Island.”
The New Yorker

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