Support Our Work


EtM’s vision is that every artist in New York City has the space they need to work. And every community has access to this work.

We provide space for performing artists through our residency programs: the EtM Con Edison Composer Residencies, and the  EtM Choreographer + Composer Residencies in partnership with the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning. These programs serve three constituencies: (1) the composers and choreographers who receive long-term, no-cost workspace; (2) the host cultural facilities that maximize underutilized space and also present the artists in a free public program; (3) the community which is invited to at least one free program – a master class, a

We Give Advice: We consult with nonprofits on capital improvements, facility searches and maximizing space.

We Study Key Issues: We examine the impact of space issues on the performing arts, and we build awareness among funders, government and stakeholders on costs, availability and potential remedies.

We are the resource on rehearsal and performance space issues and
solutions for New York’s performing arts communities.

Your donation will ensure that New York City’s great artists have the space they need to create new work and will pave the way towards a sustainable future for the arts in NYC.
