21st Century Arts Spaces

Monday, October 18, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Organized by Roberta Uno, senior program officer, Ford Foundation; Risë Wilson, program manager, Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC).

Presented by Marc Bathumi Joseph, artistic director, Youth Speaks; L. Kelley Lindquist, president, Artspace; Maria Rosario Jackson, senior research associate, Metropolitan Housing and Communities, and director, Cultural Creativity and Communities Program, Urban Institute.

As an increasing number of artists apply their creative practices to the public sphere or work at the intersections of art and related social sectors, new strategies for developing physical spaces and supporting contemporary creative practices are taking shape. This session will be an opportunity to pool observations about the ways in which new language, new value systems, and new definitions of success have surfaced as a result of artists and organizations working outside of conventional cultural facilities.
