Founded in 1889 to provide education, socialization, and cultural events to Eastern European immigrants who had settled in the Lower East Side, Educational Alliance evolved to meet the changing needs of the community. The Educational Alliance Art School is home to The Materials Center, a large collection of found materials and natural objects that are often discarded, but can be repurposed into something new-encouraging creativity, problem-solving, and action.
donateNYC Partner Fact: Each year, Educational Alliance serves more that 50,000 New Yorkers across 17 host sites in the Lower East Side.
