The View From Here

Brooklyn Commune Report coverThe Brooklyn Commune Project (BKCP) was a grassroots initiative organized by and The Invisible Dog Art Center to educate, activate and unify performing artists of all disciplines to work together towards a more equitable, just and sustainable arts ecology in America.

The View From Here” is the culminating report of the BKCP, a comprehensive 52 page document examining the current state of the performing arts in the United States, how we got here and possible futures – all from the perspective of artists.

Organized and led by Applied Creativity founder Andrew Horwitz, the document was collaboratively created through the research, investigation and writing of a core group of artists and artist/administrators. “The View From Here” was presented at the Association of Performing Arts Presenters conference in 2014 and has been ready widely by artists and artist/administrators in the U.S. and around the world.
