History

 
 
 

for over a decade . . .

Projectivity has provided resources to musicians and artists that had similar audiences and messages - mainly positive, conscious output. The word “Projectivity” was given the meaning of coming together to project our passions. The concept has always been to help others spread positive messages through the arts, and also develop sustainable careers by supporting each other in the arts. What began as a small DIY record label in 2005, slowly evolved into a full-scale arts COLLECTIVE – eventually taking the shape of an officially registered 501c(3) not-for-profit organization in the Fall of 2015.

Headquartered at Project Lab in Staten Island, the group currently serves the whole New York City tri-state area but has hosted workshops and events throughout the country.

Our Mission:

To offer education, resources, and opportunities to everyone interested in pursuing media and the arts.
