Our mission is to provide Queens-based artists with a local outlet for their creative endeavors, with the ultimate goal being to create an artistic collective that promotes local talent and original ideas. Our focus is on theater and performance, but we are looking for ways to support visual artists and local musicians as well.

This sounds broad, and that’s because it is. Queens is the most diverse borough in New York City, and Astoria is the most diverse area in the entire world according to National Geographic (thus the name of the group). Naturally, an area this diverse with such a rich culture has attracted many artists from all over the city, as well as all over the world. We didn’t want to limit what this group could potentially do or create, so we’re leaving it a bit open ended.
