Gil Shiva and the Susan Stein Shiva Foundation
This year, it is our joy to honor the singular Gil Shiva, whose leadership, integrity, and stewardship of the Susan Stein Shiva Foundation, have guided The Public Theater for decades. A long-time Public Theater Trustee and passionate champion of the arts, Gil’s commitment to a theater that is accessible to all can be felt in every corner of New York City.
The Annual Community Leadership Award recognizes a member of The Public Theater who has provided exemplary service to their community by establishing meaningful relationships and enhancing the lives of their neighbors. The recipient opens sustainable pathways for all New Yorkers to express their creative power, embodying the belief that culture belongs to everyone. Their leadership leaves lasting impact on their community, The Public Theater, and the city of New York.
The Public is thrilled to present the second annual Community Leadership Award to Jamie Maleszka, Director of Creative Arts at The Fortune Society, in recognition of her extraordinary collaboration with The Public and in celebration of her efforts in community artmaking.
