Though the global pandemic has devastated arts organizations, New Village Arts remains committed to creating adventurous artistic experiences to bring our community together. NVA has established a residency at the world-famous The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, and will be producing live outdoor events on their outdoor stage through October 2021. From cabaret performances to full musicals, plus Shakespeare and original works, NVA is proud to be leading the return to live performances in North County, San Diego.
NVA will also be hosting the first inaugural “Arts on the Green” Golf Tournament fundraiser on June 14, 2021, in lieu of a traditional Annual Gala. Featuring live performances, refreshments, and exciting prizes, this day on the links will support NVA as we work toward a full-scale reopening in the coming months. NVA is the proud recipient of a $500,000 grant from The Conrad Prebys Foundation to support our upcoming renovation. This marks NVA’s largest single gift in its 20-year history, and a tremendous milestone in our path to reopening. The Foundation is “pleased to support [NVA’s] impactful work, especially in this moment in history–when the need in our world has deepened tremendously.” This is a matching grant, so any amount donated to NVA’s renovation will be included towards this transformational gift.
NVA is also reaffirming our ongoing commitment to amplify voices of color on our stage, our staff and board, and throughout our community, and has developed an Anti-Racism Statement & Action Plan, available on the company’s website. Look forward to more from us soon, as we endeavor for Equity, Diversity, and Belonging onstage and off.
