As the home to more than 1,500 museums, galleries, theaters, dance companies, zoos, botanical gardens, and more, New York City is clearly at the epicenter of arts and culture. Beyond these cultural organizations, arts and culture can easily be viewed in the public realm through the city's storefronts, sidewalks, and street plazas. Attracting talent and visitors alike, the vibrant cultural landscape in New York has evolved into a multi-billion-dollar sector fueling the city''s economic engine. Public investment in the arts in New York is unmatched when compared to other city and state arts councils, with only the federal government spending more. The underlying belief is that such investments in arts and culture positively impact the economy, social well-being, and community engagement. Despite its rich cultural landscape, New York City still faces challenges when addressing historic barriers such as class, race, and income inequality. Join industry professionals, civic leaders, and other major stakeholders as they discuss the challenges and opportunities when creating a cultural eco-system that is more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable for all New Yorkers.
