Presenting

Join NYSCA in November and December for a strategic planning workshop in your region!

Presenters shape performing arts programming at venues statewide, from multi-arts centers to fringe festivals to historic concert halls. The Presenting Program develops, nurtures, and strengthens presenters of live professional performing arts and encourages artistic excellence in the presentation of innovative and culturally diverse work.

Supported projects and organizations may be multi-or cross-disciplinary in nature and may integrate visual, media, and literary art forms in performance-based works. NYSCA is committed to the development of new presenters in regions of the state with a scarcity of professional performing arts activity or an absence of a particular art form.
