Anticapitalism for Artists


January 28 2023

IN RESIDENCE: January 28 2023

Anticapitalism for Artists is an inclusive education community dedicated to raising the class consciousness of artists of all kinds in order to transform the living conditions of both arts workers and the world.

We offer an array of politically-focused education courses and events accessible to artists and creatives of all modes and practices, regardless of professional title, or formal training, all on a donation-based pay model.

We reject the elitist and hierarchical methods of academia in favor of cooperatively learning from each other and fostering community.

Our work and community stand on the principles of overcoming racial capitalism, heteropatriarchy, settler-colonialism, and imperialism.

IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village,  IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, New York State Council on the Arts, A.R.T./New York’s NYC Small Theatres Fund made possible with support from the Howard Gilman Foundation.
