ARTs East New York (AENY) is committed to promoting multi-disciplinary arts as a means to address socio-economic issues facing East New York, Brooklyn. Founded in 2009 by East New York resident Catherine Green, AENY’s mission is rooted in the idea that enlightening a community through culture sets a sustainable pattern of development. Our work centers around three main components: ARTS EDUCATION, COMMUNITY EVENTS, and COMMUNITY BEAUTIFICATION. In 2013 alone, we have engaged over 100 East New York youth in community enriching arts projects, transformed a 10,000 square foot vacant lot into a vibrant recreational space, staged 20 free outdoor performances, and exhibited the work of 41 local and international artists.
