About Tea Arts & Culture:
Tea Arts & Culture is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating connections through the art of tea. We build connections between arts and cultures while rediscovering our connections to nature and to each other. We believe that tea can inspire self-reflection and creativity. We strive to cultivate an appreciation for the diverse arts and cultures around us in NYC by bringing people together to enjoy cross-cultural tea ceremonies, storytelling, and multi-sensory and multidisciplinary arts such as poetry, music, and performances. We organize tea gatherings and educational workshops in public green spaces, gardens, city parks, and senior centers. Our Nature Tea has been sponsored by Brooklyn Art Council since 2019 and our various programs are endorsed by many of our partners including Prospect Park Alliance, GreenThumnNYC, Hamilton-Madison House, and many others.
