VGrafLive is New York's preeminent live-performance and webcasting studio for both established and emerging talent in the performing Arts and innovative presenters in the Sciences. We bring to Audiences, both local and worldwide, stimulating, intimately staged LIVE theatre, poetry, musical and intelligent comedic performances and mind-opening scientific presentations online that might never be available to them otherwise. Programs are performed live and simultaneously webcast to the world. There is often online audience-interactivity and participation.
VGrafLive produces original programming, co-produces with other organizations and hosts individuals and creative groups.
OUR MISSION is:
- To bring innovative, intelligent, thought-provoking and entertaining programming to worldwide audiences
- To encourage and support talented people and creative organizations
- To provide to such talent wider exposure than otherwise possible
- To promote cross-cultural understanding and communication through art and science
To make our programs widely accessible, most are webcast for free or at very nominal fees for viewers and produced at either low or no cost to the talent. We work with our collaborators and guest-talent to find ways to generate funding for them and to sustain the VGrafLive operation. Donations and member contributions, often tax deductible, and sponsorships are our primary funding sources.
