Join us as we celebrate 20 years of PARTICIPANT and new beginnings with a night of artist-choice performances at Legendary S.O.B.’s.

PARTICIPANT relocated to 116 Elizabeth Street to begin a multi-year project aimed at strengthening our program, expanding our mission, and envisioning a sustainable future in support of the transformative cultural work by and for the artists and communities of Downtown New York City. This event will launch this pivotal phase, offering artists, collaborators, and our communities invaluable opportunities to learn, unlearn, and collectively shape PARTICIPANT’s horizon.
