oftentimes all a new or emerging artist needs is space to MAKE, a platform to be heard from, and an introduction.

a core initiative for SEQUIN is content creation around emerging makers. we produce professional short video interviews, photoshoots, and features across our social media platforms to elevate + showcase these artists. visit our MAKERS page to see more.

we also produce a weekly show called WHAT WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT to highlight creators in NYC and beyond and encourage others to see & experience their work. 

from August 27 -Sept 1, 2017 we took our first SEQUIN Makers Retreat to the Poconos Mountains. this weeklong retreat served as space for 5 makers to develop new projects in a restful space away from the hustle of NYC. all food and transportation was be provided, with nightly vegan dinners created by Team SEQUIN. the reatreat was provided free of agenda. simply space for the artists gathered to work. 

later in 2017 we will produce a companion workshop series to continue developing these projects. 

we are currently planning future retreats in for Spring and Summer 2018.

future goals include partnering with fellow organizations to connect makers across the city + beyond, as well as creating educational programming to nurture young creators.
