NYC Open Culture Program Resources

Open Culture is a new City government program that allows ticketed, socially distanced outdoor performances, rehearsals, and classes at nearly 200 street locations throughout the five boroughs. Arts and cultural institutions, as well as entertainment venues, can apply for an Open Culture permit from the New York City Street Activity Permit Office for the low fee of $20.
