We are raising funds for the Costume Industry Coalition!
The costume industry is an essential but often unseen part of New York City’s arts and culture landscape: they create, supply and care for costumes for stage, dance, television, film, opera, cruise ships, concerts and more. The Costume Industry Coalition (CIC) was created in June 2020 to advocate for the survival of their vital but fragile ecosystem of small businesses--that employ over 500 artisans, craftspeople and costume experts--to ensure their employees will have an artistic home to which to return once this current crisis is over.
The CIC's fiscal sponsor is the Artisans Guild of America (AGA), a non-profit dedicated to perpetuating the American tradition of the artisan workroom. All donations will be tax-deductible through the AGA.
