Applause from Our Partners
“We are also seeking ways to address issues that the cultural community has identified as areas of particular concern. For instance, finding and keeping affordable space is of critical importance to our constituency.”
“Also related to the issue of space are other initiatives being supported by DCA that will enable music and dance organizations to research rental facilities for rehearsal and performance. Now up on the web, nycmusicplaces.org serves the space needs of music organizations and vocal and instrumental musicians. nycdanceplaces.org provides similar information for dance companies, choreographers and dancers. Both Websites are projects of Exploring the Metropolis, Inc.”
- Kate Winslow (AVA, Commissioner)
“I’ve rarely seen a site so well organized and where the technology has been so well thought through to provide incredible ease of use while supplying amazingly detailed information. It is a resource musicians have long needed.”
- Dustin Thompson (AVA, Director of Development)
“Paradoxically, though New York City is a mecca for the performing arts, most artists and groups will tell you that finding a place to rehearse other than their cramped studio apartments is a nightmare.
“Enter the website which leverages the power of the Internet to provide a much needed resource for artists. More than just a web version of something that used to exist in print, this site is something altogether new and has changed the day-to-day lives of artists who might never have known of all the locations in which they can rehearse and perform. It’s also a great benefit for venues that otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach artists directly who need space.”
“All in all, it’s one of those win-win web sites that brilliantly makes the arts thrive that much more in New York. Bravo.”
- Mark Carr, President of Patron Tech Industries
Again, we would like to thank all our supporters and partners. We look forward to work with you for our coming projects.
