NIA Theatrical Production Company is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating young Artists and bringing arts programs to under-served communities in NYC. We began operations in 1998 in part to address the paucity of career opportunities for artists of color.
We facilitate our mission through our Play Development and Music Production programs for Emerging Artists, and our Art-in Education programs for school systems. We conduct most of our program activities in under-served areas of Brooklyn, NY including Brownsville, East New York, and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We also recruit/develop playwrights and musical artists from these communities as well as from school systems in these areas.
Since 1998, more than 14 playwrights, 10 musicians, and many actors, directors and technical personnel have honed their skills through our programs. We are proud to note that over 30 school systems have used our arts programs to enhance their students educational quality.
