"Fighting Prejudice Through the Arts"

aka the Fresh Fruit Festival   |   NEW YORK, NY   |  http://www.FreshFruitFestival.Com

Mission

For over 25 years the mission has been "Fighting Prejudice through the Arts." - ALL OUT ARTS confronts homophobia and ethnic prejudice through the humanizing influence of the arts, by increasing awareness of the cultural contributions of the LGBTQ Community of all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds while supporting, nurturing and celebrating LGBT artists.

Notes from the nonprofit

As a theatre organization, the Fresh Fruit Festival and All Out Arts (our corporate parent) have always been, and continue to be, committed to providing a platform for the stories of people of color, especially those within the queer community. To support this, our programming this season – now virtual – will strive to present the struggle and successes of the interaction of the Queer and other minority communities. During Pride Month, we remember that pride was born in 1969 by taking a stand at the Stonewall Inn. We cannot fight for our own, Queer equality without also fighting for equality of All people. We have always been laser-focused on our primary directive: Fighting Prejudice Though the Arts; and we continue to stress diversity within the LGBTQ community in the works we present and programs we sponsor. The struggle for any group’s civil rights is also our struggle. – Board of Directors, All Out Arts, Inc. June 1, 2020

the Fresh Fruit Festival

The Fresh Fruit Festival is presented by All Out Arts to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s unique perspective, creativity & diversity, and to build links between the highly diverse LGBTQ artistic communities. A Main-stage festival of theatrical works is held each Spring through Fall at the Wild Project, a modern, "green" theater space in Greenwich Village, plus other local venues, and throughout the year on "virtual" spaces on the Internet. These consist of juried selections of works in the Performing and plastic Arts designed to showcase new and emerging creators in the Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, and Bisexual communities, plus select masterworks, demonstrating the vast spectrum of LGBT artistic contribution. The Festival continues throughout the year with a series of free or low-revenue Ancillary Events: workshops, contests, art exhibits and panels. A major portion is devoted to Developmental Workshops for playwrights and screen writers.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Constituent (client or resident, etc.) advisory committees, Suggestion box/email,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    In the last 3 full years (years 16-18) we instituted a greater degree of "hand-holding" or direct 1:1 intervention with incoming artists and productions. This was a direct result of feedback from each previous year's artist-participants. In the current 12-month period bridging fiscal years 2020-2121, because we have initiated more "virtual" or on-line programming, we increased this coaching and training to include a high degree of a) dramaturgical advice, b) technical assistance in apt virtual presentation, sound & video technology, and c) the creative artist transitioning from live stage presentation to film presentation.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board, Our funders,

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    It is difficult to get the people we serve to respond to requests for feedback,
