A Cultural Plan for All New Yorkers, with Tom Finkelpearl

Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

Introduction by Ester Fuchs, School of International and Public Affairs


Department of Cultural Affairs Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl discusses art, leadership, institutions, and how to create change at the scale of the city, including CreateNYC, the first-ever comprehensive cultural plan for the City of New York. Studied and produced over two years and released in July 2017, the plan "is intended to serve as a roadmap to a more inclusive, equitable, and resilient cultural ecosystem, in which all residents have a stake." Finkelpearl will be joined in conversation by Dean Carol Becker, Columbia University School of the Arts.


Co-presented by the Arts Administration Program, Teachers College; Columbia University School of the Arts; Mailman School for Public Health; Columbia GSAPP; and the Urban and Social Policy Concentration, School of International and Public Affairs.
