A.R.T./New York provides nonprofit theatres with grants for general operating and production support, free rehearsal space, and access to loan programs that offer capital to purchase and renovate spaces of their own and cash flow assistance.



Each year, A.R.T./New York offers more than 100 hours of business training by industry experts on topics like fundraising, finance, marketing, board governance, and strategic planning. Theatre professionals can learn the skills they need at a price point anyone can afford: free!



Renting space is expensive, which is why we fund and maintain more than 66,000 square feet of heavily subsidized office, rehearsal, and performance spaces for the theatre community. Our facilities in Manhattan and Brooklyn are home to more than 70,000 artists annually. 



New York City is built on connections, which is why A.R.T./New York strives to connect theatre companies, artists, and audiences to each other through our popular industry parties, peer-to-peer roundtables, panels, and lectures. Our calendar of events attracts theatre makers and lovers from all five boroughs.
