Join us for the 20th edition of River To River, Downtown New York City’s completely free summer arts festival, June 10-27, 2021, presented by LMCC.
From its origins in the aftermath of 9/11 to the present context of the pandemic, River To River has long highlighted the fundamental role that creativity in all its forms plays in processes of recovery, resilience and renewal.
Curated by Lili Chopra and Nanette Nelms, the wide-ranging program speaks to our current moment, offering new ways of seeing and connecting. In addition to the broad range of in-person events, digital films in the Festival’s program will be streamed on LMCC’s website.
Check back for updates and more information throughout May. Events requiring RSVP will be released on June 1 on LMCC.net/R2R.
All events are free and open to all.
