Our Projects

The Avenue Blackbox is a safe, bold, creative black-owned performing arts space located in Historic Joseph Avenue neighborhood of Rochester, NY created to offer affordable, meaningful, culturally rich experiences created by artists of color, youth, LGBTQ+, emerging BIPOC creatives, and cultural collaborators traditionally marginalized or silenced in a wide array of artistic disciplines to city of Rochester residents and visitors. 


We seek to create a sustainable partnership with the Joseph Avenue neighborhood and the larger community in all that we do that ultimately transforms an art dessert to a dynamic, vibrant, nucleus of socially impactful, community-centric arts corridor. 

Since opening June 2018, we have proudly offered a variety of community-friendly shows, productions, and programs with our youth and emerging creatives at the center!
