The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council partners with PRELUDE on a data experiment. We will survey PRELUDE artists, past and present, to come to a better understanding of where work is made. During this session, we will review the findings together and discuss what creative spaces are—or were—critical to this field.

Prior to joining the LMCC team in 2012, she supported the development and production of new plays throughout New York and regionally at theaters like The Public Theater, Playwrights Horizons, SoHo Rep, and Actors Theatre of Louisville, and for companies like Clubbed Thumb, SITI Company, 13P, P73, and the TEAM. Between 2006 and 2017, she facilitated new play development at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Playwrights Conference and recently helped develop and administer the National Directors Fellowship, a program which supports early-career directors across the country, now in its third year. Danielle holds a B.F.A. from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and a M.A. in Arts Administration from Columbia University. At LMCC, Danielle works with artists of all disciplines and is responsible for Artist Residency Programs in temporarily vacant real estate, the annual River To River Festival which provides free contemporary performance across Lower Manhattan each summer, Open Studios, and the Gallery in the Arts Center at Governors Island.

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) empowers artists by providing them with networks, resources, and support, to create vibrant, sustainable communities in Lower Manhattan and beyond. In 2017, LMCC will present more than 60 days of free arts and cultural experiences – including our flagship River To River Festival – which engage more than 100,000 audience members; host more than 100 artists in our residency programs; award more than $650,000 in grants to artists and small arts organizations; and provide artists with valuable professional development opportunities. The combination of LMCC’s investment in individual artists and small arts groups, our robust network of partners in the public and private sectors, and our integrated approach to fostering local neighborhood efforts, aims to spark public imagination as well as inspire personal attachment and investment in NYC’s communities. Mission: To create a fertile and nurturing environment for artists and arts groups, enlivening public spaces with free programs in the visual, performing, and new media arts, and to provide leadership in cultural planning and advocacy.
