About the Center at West Park
We are a small and passionate team committed to developing and inspiring an inclusive home for the arts by revitalizing West Park Presbyterian Church, a New York City landmark. Our work builds on the church’s legacy as a venue for exemplary performances and as a space for activism and community service.
Our mission is to build a more inclusive community in the Upper West Side neighborhood and all of New York City by presenting diverse, engaging, and boundary-pushing artistic and cultural programming; providing affordable performance, rehearsal, and event space to local artists and community members; and preserving the West Park Presbyterian Church’s historic edifice. We are creating a vibrant cultural hub, a forum for conversations and connections that transcend barriers to address the important issues facing our society today.
