The Greene Space channels the collective genius of New York City to create forward-looking live art, theater and journalism that sparks change.

We share the mission of New York Public Radio: to make the mind more curious, the heart more open and the spirit more joyful. But while radio and podcasts are media made for millions, The Greene Space aims to change the world one person at a time, moving New Yorkers to the intersection of art and politics, leading courageous conversations and curating performances of intense beauty that are deeply rooted locally but relevant to audiences globally.

The Greene Space’s values are expressed not only in the programs we present on stage, but also in how we meet our audiences both in person and online.

  • We create work to change the future, while also honoring the artists and storytellers who cut the path we now walk.
  • We stand for truth.
  • We believe transformative moments happen face-to-face, one person at a time.
  • We remix the voices of New York City so that the powerful and the powerless can be heard equally.
  • We take risks to make new experiences.

The Greene Space exists to make live art and journalism by and for all New Yorkers eager to join us in creating a stronger, more beautiful and equitable world. Racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia or any other form of discrimination will not be tolerated here. All entrances and audience spaces within the venue are single-level and fully accessible. Our restrooms feature diaper changing tables.

The Greene Space would like to acknowledge that we are on Lenapehoking, the traditional and unceded land of the Lenape People, past and present. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the Lenape, who continue to honor and bring to light their heritage and contributions.

The Greene Space is funded by you.
