The mission of the Center at West Park is to build a more inclusive community in the Upper West Side neighborhood and all of New York City by:

  • presenting diverse, engaging, and boundary-pushing artistic and cultural programming;

  • providing affordable performance, rehearsal, and event space to local artists and community members; and

  • preserving the West Park Presbyterian Church’s historic edifice.

The Center aims to create and maintain a vibrant cultural hub, a forum for conversations and connections that transcend barriers to address the important issues facing our society today.




We are building a welcoming and inclusive community that spans diverse points of view; cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds; national origins and immigration statuses; ages, abilities, orientations, and gender identities; and religious and spiritual affiliations (or none at all). We call the diverse members of our community into relationship through our shared commitment to creative and intellectual expression.
