Planet Connections Theatre Festivity 2017 Announces Line Up

May 24, 2017

Described as New York’s premiere socially-conscious arts festival, The Planet Connections Festivity 2017 is designed to invoke the power of art in motivating philanthropy, community outreach and social change. Within the Festivity are multiple theater, film and music festivals. Planet Connections’ artists use their work to shed light on the causes that matter, while inspiring audiences to get involved. All of the artists raise awareness for an organization/topic of their own selection.  They are the country’s first eco-friendly arts festivity as all our artists work to create eco-concious art by revising their marketing, design and rehearsal techniques. Planet Connections artists are introduced to a community of like-minded theater makers, film makers and music makers.

 

This year's festival runs from June 14th - July 9th, 2017

THE CLEMENTE, 107 Suffolk Street, NYC
