Strategize for Arts Space Town Halls

Be effective at town halls!

A series of town halls in March will be influencing the Dept of Cultural Affairs CreateNYC Plan, and our priorities will be included!

The Coalition has been brewing up the best ways to communicate our top issues and you will be ready too!

What are the biggest issues facing community driven spaces?

Let's find out! We'll be designing the survey for coalition member spaces to fully understand what our biggest challenges are!
