Artistic Director Chris Burney says, “New York Stage and Film supports artists through flexible, responsive processes that adapt to the needs of their work. From the moment the pandemic began, we met with our community to listen to how we could best provide the support they wanted in this moment,”. He continues, continued. “For some of these projects, NYSAF will act as a producer, dramaturg, or a creative match-maker; in other cases, we’ll simply provide administrative support and a platform for artists to share their work. Even though we aren’t gathering this summer for our typical Powerhouse Season, this has been a wonderful opportunity to redefine development collaboratively and to engage nearly 150 exciting artists so far, with more to come.”
