North Star Incubator

In 2020, AP launched the North Star Arts Incubator, a 3-year leadership development initiative that supports a group of 10 Black, NYC-based artist-activists in bringing a nascent creative idea to fruition. Their visionary work includes a zine featuring NYC-based Black dance artists; a multi-borough dance/film project about gentrification; and a mutual aid network of Black choreographers.
