Economic Revitalization for Performing Artists (ERPA)

Through panels, dialogues and interactive events, Economic Revitalization for Performing Artists addressed the financial instability that performing artists face every day. ERPA projects have engaged more than 750 artists and cultural stakeholders, and regranted more than $90,000 to seven ambitious artist-entrepreneurs including award-winning theater company The TEAM, barter network OurGoods.org, composer Nick Brooke, theater ensemble Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant, dance company Equus Projects, performance poet kahlil almustafa, and theater company Stolen Chair. 

The Field partnered with BAAD! (Bronx Academy of Arts And Dance)The Fire This Time and Nuyorican Poets Cafe to offer Economic Revitalization for Performing Artists (ERPA) Outreach in 2012.
