Mission Statement

The Abrons Arts Center supports the presentation of innovative, multi-disciplinary work; cultivates artists in all stages of their creative development through educational programs and residencies; and serves as an intersection of cultural engagement for local, national, and international audiences and art-workers.

DECLARATION OF INCLUSION

Abrons values freedom of expression and creativity, ever striving to provide creative communities with a space that celebrates diversity of thought and experience. Abrons aims to be an anti-oppressive home to people from all backgrounds and does not discriminate on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, citizen status, ancestry, age, religion, disability, sex or gender, gender identity and/or expression (including a transgender identity), sexual orientation or any other characteristic. Abrons Arts Center pays respect to Lenape peoples and ancestors past, present, and future. We acknowledge that the work presented at Abrons is situated on the Lenape island of Manhahtaan (Mannahatta) and more broadly in Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland.
