Culture at the Table

If you aren’t at the table…
Talking Transition Tent
Tuesday, November 19, 5-6pm
Canal and Sixth Avenue, NYC

Join NOCD-NY (Naturally Occurring Cultural Districts New York) to discuss how arts and culture play an integral role in a just and equitable city. We will share recommendations for how the new mayor and city council can embrace arts and culture to:
  • Imagine what a just and equitable city looks like and bring people together around this vision
  • Revitalize our city from the neighborhood up
  • Increase civic participation
  • Support transformative change in such areas as food and environmental justice, transportation, parks, youth development, and more
Food and drink can be purchased at the tent’s café. We hope to see you there!
About Talking Transition:
For the first time in 12 years, New Yorkers will have a new mayor. Talking Transition is pioneering the first open transition in New York City. This initiative is transforming the typically closed-door transition process between Election Day and the Inauguration into an opportunity for New Yorkers to make their voices heard. The conversation happens in an open tent filled with transition-related events on Canal Street, in mobile “tents” in public spaces in the boroughs, and on an online forum. You can find the schedule of events and activities at and can weigh in directly at @TalkNYC2013, #TalkingTransition
