Your FAB, Your NYC: Support FABnyc in 2015!!

As you support us in the upcoming year, we invite you to tell us how FABnyc has helped you make unexpected connections, further your artistic practice, or explore the neighborhood. We understand that our work isn't simple, or even easy to describe. Our elevator pitch changes from day to day.

Maybe you've met the Switchboard Operator who introduced you to a new collaborator. Maybe you've encountered the Keyholder who helped you find the space to cultivate your artistic practice. You've probably been on the other end of the Megaphone broadcasting opportunities to get involved in arts and action in the Lower East Side. We want to hear from you: what are your #FABstories?

DIGGING INTO DANCE BLOCK

FABnyc’s Dance Block program offers an alternative solution to the rehearsal space crisis facing many New York City dance artists. Working with several of its 28 organizational members, Fourth Arts Block formed Dance Block to provide low-cost rehearsal space through centralized booking of multiple, individually owned studio spaces. The program, which serves an artistic population (historically known as severely undercompensated), has been extremely well received, with over 500 dance makers enrolled!

While dancers and choreographers get access to affordable space, studio owners receive full revenue from rentals and the satisfaction that their spaces are being used to their utmost creative capacities. FABnyc and the rest of the neighborhood benefits too, as the block fills with new artistic energy, building on the already vibrant atmosphere of this historic cultural district.

We recently checked in with some of our Dance Blockers to see how the program has played a role in their creative process…
