What We Heard

A look at public engagement from the CreateNYC Cultural Plan

From September 2016 to April 2017 we engaged more than 180,000 New Yorkers in person and online.

We talked to NYC residents, artists, teachers, researchers, students, parents, experts in the field, leaders of arts and culture organizations big and small, cultural workers, and union members at large public meetings, small focus groups, one-on-one interviews, at open office hours, over a game of ping pong, at barber shops and nail salons, online and via social media.

Here you’ll find what we learned and how to participate.
