On multiple platforms, NYC-ARTS aims to increase awareness of New York City’s nonprofit cultural organizations, whose offerings greatly benefit residents and visitors—from children to adults, and teenagers to senior citizens.
NYC-ARTS promotes cultural groups’ activities and events to tri-state, national and international audiences through nonprint media, using new technologies as they develop. Through websites, television, mobile applications and social media, NYC-ARTS nurtures New York City’s position as a thriving cultural capital of the world, one that has both world renowned institutions and those that are focused on local communities.
