Restore A Building. Remake A World.

La MaMa ETC | Capital Campaign from La MaMa on Vimeo.

La MaMa’s first permanent home at 74 East 4th Street has been on the block since 1967 providing a welcoming home to artists at all stages of their careers, and community members of all backgrounds. After more than 50 years of non-stop, intensive use by more than 100,000 artists and audiences of all nations, cultures, races, and identities, our building must undergo urgently needed renovations and be made ADA accessible if it is to remain a viable resource for the next generations of artists and audiences.

You, our artists, audience members, and supporters, are at the heart of La MaMa. We hope you will help us to restore and remake this building as a creative home for new artists, new work, and new ideas for decades to come.

Timeline: Spring 2018 – January 2020
