Program Description

Throughout the past 70 years, New York City has seen a variety of not-for-profit organizations support and advocate progressive cultural production in myriad ways.  In today’s New York City, these organizations, both old and new, are adapting and responding to contemporary urgencies and resources to remain vital in an ever-growing field of arts, design and making.  Gathering together diverse voices in these efforts, this panel discussion explores local case studies, both historical and recent, to examine how arts organizations are founded and maintained. 

Speakers include: RoseLee Goldberg, Founding Director and Curator Performa; Alanna Heiss, Founder and Director, Clocktower; Patricia Jones, Executive Director, Eyebeam; Tia Powell Harris, President/Executive Director, Weeksville Heritage Center. Moderated by Caroline Woolard, Co-Founder of resource sharing network, an online cultural institution serving NYC artists since 2009.
