About Us


In 2009 Co-Founders Matthew Fisher and Tiffany Rea-Fisher started to formalize their idea of opening an interdisciplinary arts space in NYC by forming an advisory board and joining the (ABC) Arts and Business Council of New York. ABC provides guidance for non-profit organizations through seminars and workshops.


In the summer of 2010 ITE applied for fiscal sponsorship through Fractured Atlas allowing all donations to be tax-deductible. To further advance the mission of ITE that summer ITE also created the executive board to help guide the organization financially.


ITE’s first official fundraisers took place in the fall of 2010 and the spring of 2011. This allowed ITE to start presenting local artists and to introduce ourselves to the arts community as a whole.


Since that time ITE has supported and presented numerous local artists in the fields of dance, film, theater and visual art through performances, exhibitions, space grants, and networking events.
