Exif JPEG PICTURE “The new works and artists performing throughout JanArtsNYC are a testament to our industry’s growing awareness around inclusion, racial and gender equity in our field, and ways in which we harness the collective power of our artistic endeavors and those who support this effort to strengthen our society,” said Mario Garcia Durham, CEO and President of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP), the producer of APAP;NYC, the cornerstone gathering that has been drawing the industry to New York for decades.
Several partner events were originally incubated by APAP and then grew large enough to become self-sustaining festivals and events, including globalFEST (inaugurated in 2004), Under The Radar festival (2005), and Jazz Congress (originally Jazz Connect, inaugurated in 2013). Wavelengths: APAP World Music Pre-Conference (2013) is produced by globalFEST and rock paper scissors with support from APAP. Many of the partners developed festivals to coincide with the APAP conference to leverage the unique culture and tradition that has become the largest gathering of performing arts professionals and destination for discovering new works across disciplines.

With promotional support from the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), JanArtsNYC has defined this annual celebration of the arts as the destination for artists, arts professionals and the public in New York City.
