On Saturday, April 25, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and the Theatrical Teamsters Local 817, in partnership with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, will be presenting three local organizations with “Made in NY” community grants provided by the Theatrical Teamsters. As part of their commitment to New York City, the Theatrical Teamsters Local 817 has donated three $50,000 grants that aim to help community-based organizations with a media/film or arts program that serves high-need communities.
The selected recipients are El Puente, which promotes community/youth development through engagement in the arts and education; Socrates Sculpture Park, a public space in Queens, which exhibits large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations and provides free cultural programming; and Urban Arts Partnership, which seeks to advance the intellectual, social, and artistic development of public school students through arts-integrated education programs and was co-founded by Rosie Perez. The presentation will take place at the start of Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair.
