Mayor de Blasio ran and won on a platform of a "tale of two cities." His election prompts us to ask what a vision for a more egalitarian society could mean for the arts in our city.
Over this, and two prior evenings, we will take a fresh look at how a progressive administration could - with public support - reshape and revitalize our attitudes and priorities on a wide range of pressing issues for the arts and culture broadly. What value do we place on ensuring dynamic cultural experiences for all our citizens?

Breaking down barriers: increasing access to the City’s arts and cultural resources.
New York City is an international center for arts and culture. Millions of tourists visit the city to enjoy its diverse offers from Broadway, to the Met, to small community based museums and performance companies. Yet many of the city’s population, particular college students enrolled in K-16, have little or no access to these resources. We need to get serious about how make these creative experiences available to students of all ages. Students need engagement with the arts to help them develop and become more informed about the world around them. At the same time arts and cultural institutions search for ways to cultivate today’s students to become tomorrow’s patrons.
This session will examine cooperative initiatives between art and cultural institutions, higher education and government in New York and elsewhere. What are the lessons learned and how can we design and implement successful programs?
