6:30pm Discussion

By invitation only. Livestreamed on Segal website

Change is on the horizon for New York City’s cultural landscape. Cultural advocacy and policy are central to this momentum. Cultural policy—inclusive of but not limited to public policy—broadly encompasses rules, decisions, and practices that affect cultural producers, workers, and participants. It can include modifying recruitment and hiring practices to diversify the field, advocating for the preservation of culture in neighborhood planning, or using creative strategies to promote civic engagement and social justice. This forum among arts and cultural advocates will introduce sample projects, explore how they intersect with cultural advocacy and policy, and welcome feedback and new ideas from participants.

By invitation only. The event will be live broadcasted at www.theSegalCenter.org, and comments will be welcomed from the viewing audience.

This event is co-presented by the New York City Cultural Agenda Fund/The New York Community Trust.
