MISSION

Sokoloff Arts (501c3) is a women-led cultural institution providing inspired space, resources, and cutting edge experiences at Town Stages. Helmed by a team of women from a variety of backgrounds and multi-hyphenate artistic disciplines, Sokoloff builds viable and safe space to congregate, strives to promote cross-cultural community activations, and blends the arts and business sectors to design sustainable solutions to social and financial inequalities in New York City and abroad.

THEIR STORY

Loft227 opened in the spring of 2012 as a performance and event venue providing enterprise level resources to support new works that inspire, enlighten, and strengthen communities through interactive entertainment and political action—and, shortly thereafter, Sokoloff Arts was born.

Loft227 grew to support 20,000 emerging artists, entrepreneurs, and their audiences, with an emphasis on the advancement of underrepresented voices. During their 5 years, Sokoloff Arts was able to donate over $215,000 each year in sponsorship, rehearsal hours, and production dollars to the best and brightest innovators New York City has to offer, support more than 600 live events, create jobs for over 54 local freelance artists, and welcome more than 70,000 unique visitors. In 2017, Sokoloff Arts looked to expand its vision by opening a larger space that could respond to its growing needs. Town Stages opened its doors to the public in November 2017.

IN THEIR FIRST YEAR

Town Stages was able to provide 2,664 hours of subsidized space for artists, theater companies, non-profits, charities, musicians, event planners, mothers, and more.
