This winter, communities are coming together to shape the future of arts and culture in NYC by engaging around CreateNYC, a cultural plan for all New Yorkers. CreateNYC is incorporating intensive public input and an in-depth evaluation of the city’s cultural assets through borough wide workshops, focus groups and community conversations, creating a long term roadmap to promote greater equity, access, diversity and vibrancy, and expanding opportunities for New Yorkers to access and participate in the city’s rich cultural life. In order to make this process meaningful, the plan is framing discussions around these issues, plus others identified by communities.
