As the City of New York develops its first ever New York City Cultural Plan, join the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance (DBAA) for a lively open discussion about how we can keep arts and culture vibrant in Downtown Brooklyn.
Make your voice heard in this community conversation about what culture means to you, how you experience culture in your daily life, and how your local neighborhood arts organizations can best engage you. Your voice and participation are key to ensuring that your needs and priorities are reflected in the Cultural Plan and that it is inclusive, equitable, and representative of Downtown Brooklyn's diverse and active cultural life.
