A Generative City: What Is the Role of Cultural Institutions in Keeping Neighborhoods Generative?
Tuesday May 24, 2016
Conversation starts at 6:30 PM with reception to follow
at the New Museum, Sky Room, 235 Bowery in Manhattan
Free; RSVP Required
Join the New Museum and Performance Space 122 in a Long Table conversation on the role cultural institutions have in keeping our communities generative. Organized in celebration of Lower East Side History Month, this discussion will look at the Lower East Side and the East Village.
The Long Table format was developed by artist Lois Weaver and experiments with
participation and public engagement by re-appropriating the dinner table as a public forum for informal conversations on serious topics. The event series centers around a fifteen-foot table surrounded by twelve chairs, encouraging anyone and everyone to take turns sitting down, ask questions, spark debate, listen, and share ideas.
