NOCD-NY: The Naturally Occurring Cultural District Working Group, Arts & Democracy Project and Urban Bush Women presented SPACING OUT, an interactive forum on the ways that arts and community groups are re-imagining a diverse range of urban spaces. Artists, arts administrators, cultural & community leaders and policymakers shared promising approaches, identified needs & challenges and developed recommendations for better policies and practices.

Examples included:

  • arts programming in outdoor public spaces, vacant lots and construction sites
  • cultural partnerships in public buildings and religious facilities
  • co-programmed and managed spaces
  • creative re-use of existing properties

The forum drew from and will contribute to a series of space case studies being produced by NOCD-NY, a citywide alliance of community based arts and cultural networks and leaders that have joined together to revitalize NYC from the neighborhood up. NYCD-NY is supported by Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund and The New York Community Trust.
