January In NYC grew organically as live arts festivals and professional events were scheduled around the annual APAP conference, building on the concentration of artists and presenters already traveling to New York. In January 2014, nine such organizations formed a deliberate collaboration to more effectively and efficiently serve the performing arts community. A dozen groups now comprise the consortium.
