New York City is one of the greatest cities in the World because of its ethnic diversity. Countless cultural movements have emerged in the ‘Big Apple’. The Harlem Renaissance, modern dance, jazz, abstract expressionism, graffiti, Hip-Hop, Punk Rock, and the Beat Generation Poets were all rooted in the fabric of the city. For the past hundred years it has been the epicenter in the Western culture, a city that celebrates individuality nurturing creators and their brilliance in music, film, theater, dance and visual art. Artists have been drawn into the city by intellectual ferment, cultural opportunity and an intelligent and challenging audience. New York City is the mecca for 21st century high/low culture , which is why we decided to launch 'Platform' in the Greenpoint neighborhood of BROOKLYN New York City.
