Founded, November 14, 1983, by Wayne R. Winston (manager/producer), Non-Stop Production (N.S.P.) is a Brooklyn-based, registered 501(c)3 performing and visual arts organization specifically designed to service the youth. N.S.P.'s purpose is to develop and exhibit the talents of inner-city youth by using six components: Acting, Art and Design, Music, Fashion-Modeling, Dance, and Youth Leadership. Our organization supports the concept of learning through the arts. Therefore, our focus is to emphasize the importance of an education in an advanced learning environment.
What is the purpose of Non-Stop Production?
The sole purpose of NSP is to promote young artists in a positive manner. Through our six components, each member is given the opportunity to create, perform, exhibit, teach, and demonstrate his/her ability through various forms of exhibition: fashion and talent shows, competitions, youth conferences, peer activities, field trips, community services, recordings, film, video, television, stage, and workshops. Through these avenues, each of our members will learn the values of life, respect towards self, and his/her community, dignity, self-confidence, and unity. They will be allowed to plan programs, youth conferences, and propose ideas they feel are beneficial towards their community.
