Join Lower Manhattan Cultural Council this September 8-11 in the first of two international summits focused on arts and culture after catastrophe.
Artists, performers, writers, architects, lawyers, scholars, activists, community and political leaders from a range of contexts that have been directly affected and transformed by violence will gather in downtown Manhattan in a public exchange of stories, strategies, ideas and memories.
Over three days of roundtable discussions, performances, films, and art installations in all media, Cities, Art and Recovery will consider how people remember and rebuild after tragedy and how the arts have been crucial to such recovery.
The Cities, Art and Recovery Summit is curated by Radhika Subramaniam, Director of Cultural Programs, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
