ABOUT THE CONVERSATION

Given continuing threats to public arts funding, and recent sponsorship cancelations around cultural projects that address our current political circumstances, join us for a conversation with four brilliant thinkers on what will be different for arts funding in a changing America.

WE ARE THE PEOPLE WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR is a three-day festival of public forums and performances that will gather an array of top artists, activists, and thinkers to explore what America’s new political climate means for arts and culture. On July 13, 14 and 15, 2017, at three leading New York City Cultural institutions, we will explore what a changing America means for arts funders, social justice arts organizations, and artist-activists in our communities.
