A Conversation with Women at the Forefront of the NYC Arts Programming Community
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)

Co-presented with GreenHouse and Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre.

In an industry presumed to be dominated by men, many of New York City’s most prestigious and innovative arts programmers are women. Noteworthy brings four of NYC’s most influential Artistic Directors together to discuss their path to success, the nuts and bolts of their work, their vision for the future of the New York performance scene, the prejudices they’ve overcome and recommendations for those who would like to break into the industry as either programmers or performers.


RACHEL CHANOFF (Artistic Director, Celebrate Brooklyn!)
ERIKA ELLIOTT (Artistic Director, SummerStage)
YOKO SHIOYA (Artistic Director, Japan Society)
SHANTA THAKE (Director, Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater)
