by BWW News Desk - Mar 13, 2013

Made Here is a unique documentary series and interactive website focusing on the lives of performing artists based in New York City. A collage of intimate interviews, performances and behind-the-scenes footage, the project mirrors the rich diversity of the city's artists, those who support them, and the communities they serve.
