La MaMa Umbria International — 25th Anniversary

We just had a party for the 25th anniversary of our Directors’ Symposium. It was a wonderful multi-generational, multi-talented gathering, and the epitome of a La MaMa community. And now we look to the next 25 years of our programs, our growing scholarships to artists, our various home restorations and their hospitalities, and the incredible mix of our supporters. Together we are an unmistakable creative community.

Come join us in building the next 25 years of La MaMa Umbria. Your support and partnership make future possible.

Protect the La MaMa Archive

Help us preserve La MaMa’s treasured archive materials!
The La MaMa Archive is a one-of-a-kind resource documenting, preserving, and interpreting the legacy of nearly 160,000 artists who have made La MaMa their creative home to explore new forms of expression since 1961. Without the proper environmental controls, our entire collection is at risk of deterioration.

We must raise $51,480 to match the National Endowment for the Humanities grant to put critical climate control measures in place. Donations to the La MaMa Archive will go directly to improving our space and protecting the work of thousands of groundbreaking artists for future generations.

Support La MaMa

La MaMa puts its trust in its artists. We provide the space and the support that creates an environment in which the artist can experiment and take risks. For more than 60 years, we have experienced the power of art and storytelling to break barriers, foster empathy, and dismantle oppressive ways of seeing. Dedicated to the artist and all aspects of the theater, La MaMa is a vital thread in the cultural fabric of New York City. We are deeply grateful to you for your support!

Capital Campaign
The $24 million capital renovation of La MaMa's landmark building at 74A East 4th Street has preserved its historic façade and transformed its interior with ADA accessible spaces, flexible performance venues, and a data-wide building network to facilitate cross-cultural engagement across distance.

While the building is officially reopened to our community, we're not done yet! Join Harvey Fierstein today to help us close our remaining $3 million funding gap to ensure that underrepresented artists of different identities, ideologies, and aesthetics will have a creative home in the East Village for decades to come.
