Congratulations to 3RP’s amazing Co-directors Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges, honored last night with the 2020 Acker Award for Publishing at Theatre for the New City! And special thanks to Puma Perl and Clayton Patterson for making the night happen—check out the 7th Annual Acker Awards, LES NY ACKER Superhero below, as well as Kat and Peter’s bios!
The NY ACKERS are one part of a larger vision and ambition. A vision and ambition that is not about me but it is about community. Our community. Our history. The history of the Individuals, the Outsiders, the Outlaws, the Misfits, the Radicals, the Visionaries, the Dreamers, the contributors, those who provided spaces and venues which allowed creativity to flourish, wrote about, talked about, inspired, mentored the creative spirit, and those who gave much, but have not been, for whatever reason, recognized by the mainstream. Contributors who have stayed on the grind for more than a couple of decades.
