History & Background

 “Art2Action” was first envisioned in 2001, by theatre artist Andrea Assaf, when she began creating original work under that name: “Globalicities” was the first production, at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2003.  The organization, Art2Action Inc., was formally incorporated in July 2010, with Founding Board & A2A Collective members:  Dora Arreola, Andrea Assaf, Krystal Banzon, Meena Natarajan, and Jo Novelli.  Art2Action attained 501(c)3 not-for-profit status in 2011, retroactive to the date of incorporation.  Originally incorporated in the state of New York, Art2Action’s main office and operations are currently located in Tampa, FL.
