CREATIVITY & CULTURE

Welcome to the Trops

“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.” -Stella Adler

In this dimension of hyperconnectivity, content always seems to appear from elsewhere, and we feed our attention to its pixelated portals. Our time is absorbed into moments, and in these moments we seek some measure of meaningful reality.

In the fleeting moments of lift that we are manifested, we share the air and sensory experiences with our neighbors. These mindful intersections empower us to communicate our humanity to one another, and to co-create a collective reality. In the dense and diverse landscape of New York City, this cohesive reality is Culture, which connects people to purpose. We invite the creative world to express this journey and empower our neighborhoods towards cultural and artistic sovereignty.
