Goddard Riverside’s Community Arts program provides opportunities for people of all ages to experience and participate in the arts through original and professional-caliber performing and visual arts events, as well as workshops, classes, lectures, and partnerships with renowned arts organizations in New York City.
Community Arts events take place at the Bernie Wohl Center, at Columbus Avenue and West 91st Street. The Center’s versatile auditorium serves as a concert hall, theater in the round, dance performance space, art gallery, film venue, and more!

A troubled teen gets pulled into an imaginary world called Technoland, where they have to dismantle the system and go up against a mega-computer in order to learn the importance of compromise, compassion and connection. With all of this — and a little singing and dancing — will they find their way home? Will they EVER escape Technoland? You’ll have to join us to find out!
Asata in Technoland is a very special show conceived by and for the Performing Arts Conservatory campers along with our wonderful artistic team. We can’t wait to share their work with you and to celebrate the INCREDIBLE creativity, dedication and talent that all of our campers brought this summer!
