Welcome to Vince Gatton's Fundraising Page for New York Shakespeare Exchange!
I'm so super-proud of being a part of NYSX from its inception -- as founding Board Member when the company was just a twinkle in Artistic Director Ross Williams' eye.
The years since have helped us grow and refine our mission: New York Shakespeare Exchange bridges cultural divides, starts conversations, promotes education, and brings communities together through diverse, classically-based programming that re-imagines how Shakespearean theater and poetry can impact our modern world. Through our mainstage productions, ShakesBEER pub crawls for newbies and Shakespeare nerds alike, our global online short film extravaganza The Sonnet Project, our freewheeling Freestyle Labs, and our Intersections and education outreach, NYSX uses classical art to build bridges in the modern world.
In a time when the country and world seems especially divided, we need more and better ways to forge connections. In the coming year we plan to take our Intersections experience to more towns outside of NYC, expand The Sonnet Project to the rest of the US and the world, and extend our partnership with the New York Public Library in our Freestyle Labs.
At NYSX, we keep creating community, conversation, opportunity, and engagement -- and we do it thanks to you! Donate today, won't you?
Thanks so much for supporting this extraordinary company, one that has meant so much to me for this past decade, and for helping launch us into the decade to come!
