“Culture is really the soul of our City. Without it, New York is not the thriving and humanistic City that we know it to be.”

It is no exaggeration to say performing artists are among those most impacted by the devastating financial effects of COVID-19. Gibney is here for artists and the impact they stand to make across our City—now and in the future. Taking action to respond to the needs of the community is not new for Gibney; it’s what we’ve always done. 

Gibney is committed to rebuilding our field, but we cannot do this alone: your support and partnership are essential.

With gratitude,

Jesse Obremski and Jacob Thoman perform a lift
