Roundtable Report! Creative Transformation

To explore the role of arts and culture in transforming public housing communities, NOCD-NY convened a diverse range of residents, resident advocates, tenant leaders, artists, cultural institutions, community organizations, elected officials and staff, city agencies, and funders for a roundtable in July 2015. Drawing on interviews carried out in the field, Creative Transformation: Arts, Culture and Public Housing Communities was designed to:

  • Showcase exemplary partnerships that illustrated equitable, long-term approaches
  • Identify barriers and challenges
  • Develop recommendations and discuss how to move them into action
  • Identify pilot project(s) that could be supported
  • Build and strengthen relationships among participants

A report generated from the roundtable is available HERE! Additionally, the roundtable’s groundwork has advanced a deeper initiative to involve the voices of residents, artists and activists in 2016, thanks to support from The New York City Cultural Agenda Fund in The New York Community Trust.
