JC Fridays is sponsored by Jersey City Municipal Council & Cultural Affairs, Historic Downtown SID, JCEDC; New Jersey Theatre Alliance, and supported by Art Fair 14C.
Support for Access expenses on this production provided in part through funding from Access A.R.T./New York, a program of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York).
"From art tutorials and studio visits, to live music performances and the premiere of the Jersey City Community Poem, Virtual Access JC Fridays is the perfect showcase of the diversity within Jersey City's arts community," says Producing Director Courtney Little. "By moving the event online and making accessibility a priority, participants will have the unique ability to experience and interact with every venue and artist!"
"I get immense joy making my art with other people. During the pandemic this is not a thing," says artist Theda Sandiford. "I am grateful for the opportunity afforded by Virtual Access JC Fridays to build with my community again. We may be separate but we are not apart."
"I am thrilled that Art House Productions accepted the momentous undertaking of a Virtual Access JC Fridays. Katia Bulbenko's show opened right before the "Shelter in Place" went into effect. Virtual Access JC Fridays allows us to reach a broader - and hopefully - a new audience. We are so grateful to be able to participate!" says Kristin J. DeAngelis, SILVERMAN Building Curator for Katia Bulbenko 'Fragments/Reassemblage".
