Your generous donations help us accomplish our singular mission- supporting and presenting the work of artists of color. Our dance, theater, music and film programs feature over 200 artists each season, providing a platform for these critical voices to create socially and politically conscious works of significance that contribute to the intellectual and cultural legacy of the world.

Our educational programs reach over 2,300 school youth annually. Through workshops and long-term artist residencies in local classrooms, we provide in-depth arts training for students and teachers–forging lifelong connections to the arts at a time of severe educational budget cuts.



Harlem Stage deeply appreciates the many individuals and institutions
that provide their generous support, making our programs possible.
