NYSX: Creating Community, Conversation, Engagement and Exchange for Ten Years
Now more than ever we need opportunities to create community, conversation, engagement, and exchange. In these times when we find it difficult to have meaningful conversations, to find a common language to engage, to listen, and to grow as a community - we need help. We need New York Shakespeare Exchange.
For nine years, New York Shakespeare Exchange has bridged cultural divides, started conversations, promoted education, and brought communities together through diverse, classically-based programming that re-imagines how Shakespearean theater and poetry can impact our modern world.
I started donating to New York Shakespeare Exchange a couple of years ago after seeing their production of Titus Andronicus. If you know me, you know I'm not what you would describe as a " Shakespeare theater person." NYSX's production of Titus Andronicus made me a Shakespeare theater person - they are that good. Watching the actors spin a terrifying weave of revenge and tragedy in a modern setting, but using Shakespeare's words, I couldn't help but think, in the age of Trump, "this. is. so. relevant." The truth is, I had been missing out. Shakespeare has been relevant since the 1500's. NYSX delivers this important message with every single production and all of their amazing programming.They remind us that we can use yesterday's words for today's conversations.
In order to continue on to their 10th year of success (and beyond!), New York Shakespeare Exchange needs our help. NYSX is a non-profit that relies on funding from the community to continue to execute their mission. I ask that you please join me in supporting this important organization and helping them to move forward by donating your financial support. We need NYSX now more than ever.
