About the Made Here Project:
MADE HERE is a documentary series and website focusing on the challenging and eclectic lives of New York City performing artists. Over two seasons, the series explores ten essential issues confronting the artists that make this city the creative capital of the world. A collage of intimate interviews, performances and behind-the-scenes footage, MADE HERE mirrors the rich diversity of the artists and communities they serves.
Season One rolled out from May through September 2010 with three episodes each month on topics related to: Creative Real Estate, Day & Night Jobs, Family Balance, Activism, and Technology. In the first season, MADE HERE featured more than 40 performing artists representing the disciplines of theater, dance, opera, music, puppetry, media arts and other performing arts genres. Season Two will premiere Spring 2011.
This website is the interactive home for the project, providing a platform for audiences to offer feedback on the episodes, artists to share and discover resources, and communities to engage on the issues. In addition, each topic will be supported by a live screening and panel event. Join the mailing list for news and updates.
MADE HERE is supported by a 2009 Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund award.
