Strange Bedfellows: Real Estate, The Arts, and the Value of Space
November 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$7
As government funding for the arts vacillates with the ping-pong of dual-party politics, and as periodic recessions strip many wealthy donors of their giving capacity, the precarity of the creative community has become the norm. Join us for a discussion as we devise new ways to fortify the arts through New York City’s one true constant: the ever-rising value of space. With experts from the arts, architecture, journalism, and even ex-urban land trusts, we’ll ask such questions as: How can urban prosperity ensure stability for a diverse arts culture? How can the architects and planners who navigate between these disparate worlds of art and real estate propose fresh or even radical models? And what influence do governmental subsidies have on these realms?
