NOoSPHERE Arts

NOoSPHERE Arts is a 501c3 organization and cultural center that blends the arts and sciences. Its multidisciplinary approach engages diverse audiences and builds community through a range of vibrant public events in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Mission:NOoSPHERE Arts produces and presents experimental arts programming at the nexus of art and eco-awareness. It is a welcoming platform where migrant artists connect with locals. Uniting music, dance, visual arts, theater, film, poetry & prose, our collaborative productions harness the power of art to drive action towards green living, fair play, and oneness.

Vision:
NOoSPHERE Arts encourages dialogue, openness to experimentation, and radical inclusivity. We aim to elevate the voices of historically marginalized populations. We are driven by the desire to ignite a shift in perspective from the parts to the whole. We see life as a cooperative dance energized by creativity and the constant emergence of novelty. Our goal is to instill belief in personal agency and hope through collective action: with shared efforts towards sustainability, diversity, and equity, we can create a more united and joyful world.

Ongoing Programming: 

WE ARE NATURE Series

Our annual rooftop series combines Arts, Environmental Activism, and Community Building@ around Kingsland Wildflowers @ Broadway Stages, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NYC.

Set in a surreally beautiful nature sanctuary sprouting on top of an ExxonMobil industrial plant on the bank of Superfund site Newtown Creek, the recurring WE ARE NATURE Rooftop Series offers a combination of multiple art forms – dance, music, performance, visual art, poetry, prose, and film – addressing humanity’s place on Earth in aims of engaging a diverse audience in environmental efforts through art.

Exhibitions

REPOPULATIONS is a Climate Week-inspired exhibition series that focuses on environmentally-themed subjects and takes place yearly during the summer and early fall months. The exhibition is part of the larger NOoSPHERE Arts’ WE ARE NATURE Series: art events that make full use of the unique stage setting of the Kingsland Wildflowers bird sanctuary at Broadway Stages in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to engage a diverse audience in environmental efforts through art.

Monthly Artist Salons

An ongoing collaboration with nearby artists’ community Mothership NYC, our multidisciplinary artist salons are a lower-bar entry point where creatives of all stripes can introduce their work to us and the general Brooklyn audience.  It is an informal and supportive setting where artists share their creations – often in progress — for feedback and networking. Thanks to the constant influx of international visitors coming through Mothership NYC, this experimental program gives the U.S. public access to current art from other countries and brings creative people together for artistic cross-pollination and transnational collaborations.

Launched by our partnering organization in 2016, the monthly salons take place across two platforms: During the summer season, the program is independently run by the Mothership crew on their Main Deck. From October through April, when the gatherings take place indoors at Last Frontier NYC below our stage roofs, their artistic content is co-curated by NOoSPHERE Arts.
