Mission Statement

Oye Group is a 501(C)(3) organization that serves as an incubator for artists both local and immigrant to New York City. We present an eclectic mix of theater, dance, poetry, music, video installations and film, through festivals and productions. We curate work that sparks a dialogue over political and social issues critical to our community’s growth. We work with emerging artists to create, play, and grow in an environment that challenges and supports them. We also provide quality arts education programming that gives our Brooklyn Community the tools to generate forward-thinking art.

Description

THE YEAR WAS 2012, AND OUR FOUNDER/ARTISTIC DIRECTOR WAS HOSTING A READING FOR HIS DEBUT POETRY BOOK. THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY, AND LOVE THAT WAS PRESENT ON THAT DAY WAS ENOUGH TO SPARK AN IDEA FOR CREATING A PLATFORM THAT HOLDS SPACE FOR BUSHWICK LOCALS BOTH NATIVE AND IMMIGRANT TO COME TOGETHER AND LEARN, PLAY, AND GROW THROUGH ARTS AND EDUCATION. 4 FESTIVALS, HUNDREDS OF WORKSHOPS AND 2 SCHOOL PROGRAMS LATER THAT IDEA HAS BECOME ¬°OYE! GROUP.
