Paper Swan is a Brooklyn-based production collective whose mission is to build a community of artists through events, provide a forum for ideas, help friends network, and create web and video content.
We've been a Brooklyn-based artist collective since 2007. We used to put on concerts at our old house in Bushwick, which we called the Swan Loft. We had some pretty incredible performers come through there, and we're proud of the community that we've helped build over these 6 incredible years.
Now we have our own TV show and organize concerts at other venues around the city.
