New Yorkers for Culture & Arts hosts The Future of NYC Culture and Arts: A conversation with New York City Council Speaker Candidates
One of NY4CA’s immediate goals will be to sponsor a culture and arts Candidates Forum, focusing on the upcoming selection of a new City Council Speaker. The event will help to underscore the Speaker’s role in prioritizing and advancing legislation and public policy in our City.
With the title, “A conversation with Speaker candidates on the value and impact of NYC’s Arts and Culture Sector,” the Forum will include discussion of the sector’s impact on the city’s economy and educational system, its value to community identity, livability, and development, and its importance to cutting-edge science and conservation efforts. Through this Forum, NY4CA will build on the past success of One Percent for Culture’s 2013 Mayoral Forum and the many candidate breakfasts by the NYC Arts Coalition during its 30 years as an arts advocacy organization.
