The inaugural HeForShe Arts Week is launching in partnership with the City of New York, home to UN Women global headquarters. During the inaugural Arts Week, partner institutions in New York City such as venues for ballets, operas, Broadway shows, concerts, as well as theatres, galleries, and museums will highlight the important issue of gender equality, leveraging this as an opportunity for dialogue and action. HeForShe Arts Week will come to cities around the world in 2017 and beyond.
The Public Theater serves as the inaugural theatrical partner for HeForShe Arts Week. The Public Theater, home of award-winning productions including Hamilton, Fun Home and free Shakespeare in the Park, has been a champion of diversity and equality on its stages, in its audiences and at the core of its mission for more than 60 years.
