Staten Island OutLOUD is the proud winner of six consecutive awards from the National Endowment for the Arts/The Big Read. The NEA presents The Big Read in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and in cooperation with Arts Midwest.
Staten Island OutLOUD's year-round events are made possible in part by Encore Awards from Staten Island Arts, with public funding by NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Some of our poetry workshops are made possible in part by a grant from Poets & Writers, Inc., with public funds from the New York City Dept of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
Special programs, like our 2016-17 series on Dashiell Hammett's "The Maltese Falcon", are made possible in part by awards from the National Endowment for the Arts/The Big Read. We are grateful for additional support from the Stettenheim Foundation. Special thanks to our community sponsors RPM Insurance Agency, Honor Wines, Eltingville Veterinary Practice, and friends like you. Thanks to you all!
