Review for Nicus Spoon Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2007, I became Education Director for this company. Previously, I was offered a role with the company but due to personal problems, I had to drop out of the play and get my life together. Most other companies would have blacklisted me, but when I told the artistic director about my problems, she embraced me, gave me another chance and hired me to be the Education Director. No one else believed in me at this time in my life, but this company helped me get back on my feet. As a disabled person and artist I have grown immensely because of my involvement in Nicu Spoon. Since then I have built an education program where we do a kids show every year. Currently, we are embarking on our fourth show, which servesall people and kids with disabilities. Our program utlizes people of all abilities, but serves playwrights, actors and audience members who are disabled. We mix the disabled and abled world, thereby eradicatibng booundaries that often separate disabled people. This company has helped many of us find the abilty in disability and has pushed me ton become better as a person, administrator, and artist

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

empowering people to develop their talent to the fullest potential

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get us a paid staff which would increase our ability to reach a larger audience and make a bigger impact

Role:  Client Served & Education Director.
