Underground Arts


‘Where Art And Community Connect’

Grand Central Neighborhood (GCN) is proud to announce the launch of its newest endeavor, a multipronged cultural and arts programming initiative. Inspired by the energetic spirit that art can awaken, GCN is embarking on a year-long project to provide its clients and supporters with some of the most inspiring free arts programming in Midtown Manhattan.

GCN is expanding its mission to not only provide clients with critical necessities such as food, clothing, showers, and shelter but also to offer opportunities for self-expression, creative development, and cultural exchange. Our goal is to become a platform for developing new relationships across diverse demographics, helping to de-stigmatize the experience of being homeless through the universal need to experience and appreciate creative action.

GCN has always been a place of gathering, celebration, and re-energizing the spirit. Now, these goals will be formally incorporated into our programming. Join us in this exciting adventure and be part of our expansion: participate in our art workshops, speak up at a panel discussion, appreciate the art at our monthly exhibits, introduce yourself to someone new at a poetry reading, or dance with abandon at our concerts.

It’s all happening at GCN in the Summer of 2024, and we want you to be a part of it!
