Gabrielle L. Kurlander, President and CEO

Gabrielle L. Kurlander grew up in Ithaca, NY.  She has decades of training in all aspects of performance and theatrical producing, and holds a BA from CUNY/Empire State.  Ms. Kurlander resides in Greenwich Village in New York City.

Gabrielle Kurlander's experience as an inner-city community organizer, combined with her passion for theatre, drew her to the unique model of performance-based development pioneered by the All Stars Project, Inc. (ASP).  Over the past two decades, Ms. Kurlander's leadership and innovative, entrepreneurial spirit has transformed All Stars from a grassroots all-volunteer effort into a national and international model for engaging poverty through afterschool development and community organizing.  Funding the ASP entirely through private donations, Ms. Kurlander has won the support of hundreds of prominent business leaders, philanthropists and corporations, and has raised over $110 million during her tenure. 

Under her leadership, ASP has expanded from its original home in New York City to Newark, NJ in 2000, the San Francisco/Bay Area, CA in 2005, Chicago, IL in 2008 and Dallas, TX and Bridgeport, CT in 2013.  Kurlander also oversaw the creation of the All Stars Project's national headquarters, a 31,000 square foot, $20 million performing arts and development center on 42nd St in New York City in 2003 and the country's first Center for Afterschool Development in Newark in 2013.

In addition to her duties as President and CEO, Kurlander created and leads an ASP summer program for inner city young adults called The Art of Painting the World in Different Colors

After a brief stint in the commercial theatre, Gabrielle now creates political and avant-garde off-Broadway theatre, and has performed in dozens of shows and directed numerous plays and musicals.  In 2011, Ms. Kurlander directed Playing with Heiner Muller, which won an Audelco for Outstanding Ensemble; her direction of the 2012 production of Sally and Tom (The American Way) won five Audelco awards, including a best director award.

Ms. Kurlander's entrepreneurial credits include raising investment capital in the early 1990s to found an organizational change company called Performance of a Lifetime, which continues to train dozens of corporate clients worldwide.
