Outreach, Projects & Continued Education
Off The Lane’s Outreach programs are specifically geared towards giving back to the arts community in a variety of ways. Through OTL’s Special Projects, we will continue to give back by providing additional support to individuals, schools and other non-profit organizations to help fulfill their need of creative and artistic guidance. Continued Education goes back to the heart of why this organization began. Our entire team at OTL knows first hand how versatile training, education and networking can play directly into the success of one’s career.
Off The Lane’s BOOST Program is designed for early career artists 18+ who have lived in NYC while pursuing the arts for at least one year. We implement tailored challenges in order to help BOOSTers progress towards their specific career objectives. Through one-on-one sessions, BOOST provides resources and advice along with periodic events that feature relevant experts to help provide insight to meet creative goals.
Created by our Community Coordinator, Sophie Brubaker, ColLab is an experimental workshop that connects interdisciplinary artists and encourages them to create new works together. Through mixer-like settings, artists will learn how to utilize their community, brainstorm innovative pieces, and receive producing support from Off The Lane. Let’s connect, create and collaborate!
The Off The Lane Mentorship Program connects motivated juniors, college seniors and young professionals 18+ looking to move to NYC with working creative professionals to enrich, educate, and engage them to ease their transition into a new creative community. Over the course of the session, Mentees will meet with their Mentors once a week digitally. They will cover a wide variety of topics such as housing, transportation, and entertainment industry insight.
The Off The Lane’s Speaker Series Program is a great way for the creative community to gain access to notable leaders across multiple industries. Curated educational events and workshops are held with panelists and master teachers to provide insight on a wide variety of topics. Be sure to join our mailing list to be in the know of the next in-person or virtual event.
