MadeHERE Asks Artists How They Survive

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

It's never been easy to be a working artist. Now, a web-based project called MadeHERE asks how forty New York performing artists manage to pay rent, raise families and make art.

A project of the HERE Arts Center, MadeHERE consists of three monthly episodes give viewers a look at what life is like when the footlights are off. So far, they've tackled Creative Real Estate and Day and Night Jobs.  The interviews -- with established performers like Elizabeth Streb (of SLAM) or Anne Bogart (of Siti Company), as well as lesser-known names -- are interspersed with snapshots and footage from past shows. 

A screening and discussion of next month's episodes, "Family Balance" will be held at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden in Staten Island on July 18 at 3pm.
