Founded in 1997 and incorporated in 2004, Falconworks is an intrinsically diverse organization. As a community-serving institution, our audience, staff, and board membership reflect our physical and programmatic community. Our natural constituency consists of the theater and arts enthusiasts representing the varied races, genders, and sexual orientations that gravitate to the arts.
Our artistic staff, volunteers, and audiences are often from our local community, Red Hook, Brooklyn which houses the largest public housing project in the borough directly adjacent to a rapidly gentrifying waterfront community. Falconworks remains committed to bridging the facets of our community by creating programs that address issues, are inclusive, and provide a space for discussion. We hold free programs close to the housing projects, engage grassroots marketing efforts, and recruit board members who are from the community.
