About accessHERE:

Providing accessible arts experiences remains a primary goal for HERE each year. To accomplish this, HERE maintains a ticket price of $25 or less to all of our productions, but also issues close to 10,000 free or discounted tickets through our accessHERE program.

The first part of accessHERE is HERE’s student rush ticket program, which offers free tickets to students or teachers to any HERE production or presentation when tickets remain available just before curtain. Students and teachers must simply present ID at curtain time to take advantage of this opportunity. 

Second, we provide free tickets to local community and social service organizations that serve local constituents, appreciative of having the chance to see HERE’s wide range of innovative performance work.

Finally, HERE welcomes the public to free works-in-progress showings, gallery openings, and talks and events surrounding our productions. We also offer early purchase discounts through our HEREsay, click here to subscribe and be among the first to find out about these special rates.

HERE is grateful to receive support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs for the AccessHERE program.
