Watch how Turnout NYC is creating new venues for New York's Artists. Follow the series on Youtube.

The Turnout NYC video series is documenting how the project's collaborative model is leveraging public spaces as accessible venues for arts and culture to expand equitable arts access in New York City, and beyond. Videos created by Natalie Romero-Marx, Communications and Storytelling Fellow.

The fifth video in the series goes to Turnout Harlem with Uptown Grand Central & National Black Theatre. The Learn to Love Yourself: Silent Disco & Portrait Series featured commissioned, original soundscapes from acclaimed artists and sound designers for an outdoor dance party in tandem with a portrait photography series that invited the community to have their portraits taken by notable photographers. All portrait photographers used the set designed by acclaimed visual artist, Alixa Garcia. Learn more about the artists here and view the portrait gallery
