Rethinking Cultural and Public Life
New York City is beloved for its abundant cultural activities and its magnificent public spaces. With the forced shutdown of theaters, museums, and cultural organizations and a renewed focus on equity, what is a creative way forward for artists and audiences? As New York’s parks and streets have become even more central in this time, what are new ways to rethink the city’s cultural and public life? Gonzalo Casals, commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, moderates a panel, featuring: Kamilah Forbes, executive producer for the Apollo Theater and director of the stage and HBO productions of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates; Setha Low, professor of psychology, earth and environmental sciences, and anthropology, and director of the Public Space Research Group at The Graduate Center, CUNY; and Wendy Whelan, former principal dancer with the New York City Ballet and current associate artistic director of the company.

Part of the series Rethinking NYC, co-sponsored by the Center for Urban Research and the Institute for State and Local Governance.
