The Performance Project @ University Settlement provides established, emerging and young artists and local audiences in the Lower East Side with opportunities to connect and enrich each others' lives.

While the type of work artists present may differ, what unites them is a set of shared values and beliefs including engaging youth and diverse communities in the arts.

Founded in 1886, University Settlement offers a season packed full of exciting emerging and established artists. All performances take place in intimate and historic Speyer Hall, a cultural landmark in the heart of the Lower East Side.
