Hello readers! Welcome to Fourth Arts Block's very first blog. In case you don't know who we are, Fourth Arts Block is a non-profit organization that represents the East Fourth Cultural District. We help to keep the performance venues open and operating by promoting their work while aiding the east village community with green initiatives, neighborhood festivals, and leading centralized projects to advance the district.
So we thought by starting a blog we could keep you updated with all of our adventures and goings-on! Be sure to check out our website, www.fabnyc.org, to catch all the shows and creative opportunities the neighborhood has to offer. Coming up this week are two really special events: FAB Fridays and Fundraising in Style. FAB Fridays happen every Friday in May and June at 5PM and we sell hugely discounted tickets (as low as $9.00!) to local theater, dance, and art shows so that everyone has an opportunity to see the great stuff today's artists are creating. Fundraising in Style is happening this Saturday at NOON at one of our theaters (check out the information and RSVP to get in free HERE) and we'll be setting up tables from local fashion designers to sell their items. So come and peruse all the quality faire while sipping on some sangria this spring Saturday. What more could you ask for?
And be sure to keep your eyes peeled and your ears open about all upcoming FAB Fridays and our June festival, Meet the Street.
