Wednesday, March 22
All day symposium and town hall
FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.
The Segal Center is partnering with New York arts and culture organizations to host a day of outreach, engagement, and strategy towards the creation of a new cultural plan for New York.
The all-day symposium features morning breakout sessions around themes and ideas generated from a series of breakfasts and meetings between cultural workers and organizations over many months leading up to this event.
The afternoon program features short presentations of direct proposals to the planning consultants, followed by an evening with short manifestos from NY arts organizations and a Town Hall discussion. In partnership with The Field, One Percent for Culture, Center for Arts Education, Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, and Gibney Dance, the initiative grew out of the Cultural Agenda Fund’s efforts to supplement the official planning process conducted by the city and is supported by the New York Community Trust. This Create NYC event was organized by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, Brad Burgess and Frank Hentschker in close collaboration with The Field, One Percent for Culture, Center for Arts Education, Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, and Gibney Dance.
