En Garde Arts uses the city as our stage to offer accessible theatre that explores the salient social issues of our time.
We are an artist-centric company that supports playwrights, directors, composers and designers in creating new work from the ground up.
We invite artists to think deeply about the stories they choose to tell and the physical sites where they belong to meet audiences where they live and work, spark conversations that explore a range of perspectives, and build an inclusive community.
We are transitioning to a new leadership model that allows for multiple creative perspectives to inform the curation of our various programs.
We aim to become a cultural hub and a mentorship home for creative producers who can in turn mentor us.
We at En Garde Arts acknowledge that we live and work on the unceded land of the Lenape Peoples. En Garde Arts recognize the longstanding significance of these lands for Lenape nations past and present and that New York City currently has the largest urban Native population in the United States. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.This is a living land acknowledgement, and we will continue to revise and strengthen it in collaboration with community members.
