Culpeper Arts & Culture

Nurturing a vibrant & inclusive arts community in New York City

  • The Foundry Theatre's Audience Ambassadors program works with community organizers in New York City to bring groups from their own neighborhoods to attend performances at theaters across the city. For many, this is their first time engaging with theater.
  • BOFFO fosters innovative intersections among design, art, and architecture. It produces creative, ambitious, and forward-thinking public art while supporting collaborations among a variety of theorists, creators, and the communities around them.

Program Guidelines

The Charles E. Culpeper Arts & Culture program supports the creative process, builds the capacity of small and mid-size arts and cultural institutions across all arts disciplines, and promotes diversity in the city’s creative life.
