Venue and Organizational Outreach
Are you a Queens Arts/Cultural Venue? Are you a local business interested in hosting arts and cultural events? Are you an organization that plans or produces events, shows, or other activities in Queens?
We are seeking partners to join Queens Rising 2023! Queens Rising is a multi-disciplinary arts celebration, scheduled for June 2023, designed to highlight our borough’s cultural and creative diversity by amplifying and promoting Queens arts and culture. As a community that has suffered racial and economic discrimination in the midst of a global health crisis, we come together to celebrate our resilience and future. Queens Rising serves as a platform to amplify Queens as a rich arts & culture hub and destination. We celebrate our community as one borough and all it offers to NYC and beyond!
Queens Rising is comprised of a volunteer Advisory Committee representing Queens arts and cultural institutions and our Working Groups include over seventy-five artists, arts administrators, and other creatives from throughout the borough.
What We Will Offer
Launch a wide-reaching marketing campaign to promote Queens arts and culture.
Amplify venues, performance companies, cultural centers, institutions, and small businesses by promoting events around the borough.
Outreach to less visible and often overlooked institutions and organizations interested in reaching new audiences.
Unify neighborhoods by providing audiences with easy-to-find event and calendar listings featuring artistic, cultural offerings, and other sites of interest within specific communities.
Connect artists, venues, and businesses to provide as many opportunities as possible for arts and culture to be seen in Queens.
Celebrate Queens with opening and closing events produced by our local partners.
Fundraise from both public and private sources, without pursuing or affecting any partners’ current or ongoing funding channels.
