National Sawdust Projects produces, incubates, and tours new interdisciplinary music projects that reflect the world we live in today as well as the world we imagine, and wish to cultivate, for the future.
With the belief that collaboration sustains artistic innovation, National Sawdust Projects brings together emerging and established artists with experts in music, film, history, science, and beyond to create new works that speak to themes of social justice, untold stories from unheard voices, technology, and the environment. Frequently drawing from the work of National Sawdust’s Artists-in-Residence and Projects-in-Residence programs, National Sawdust Projects takes works from ideation to execution and presents them to audiences around the world.
National Sawdust Projects is the producing arm of National Sawdust, a state–of–the–art concert venue and non-profit in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Originally conceived in 1999 as VisionIntoArt by Paola Prestini, National Sawdust Projects serves as a multimedia production company that “facilitates flamboyant, confounding, and enticing collaborations” (New York Times).
By presenting relevant, impactful new works on a global stage, National Sawdust Projects moves beyond the walls of our physical Brooklyn home to forge relationships between new audiences and the most innovative artists living today.
