WE ARE THE PEOPLE WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR is a three-day festival of public forums and performances that will gather an array of top artists, activists, and thinkers to explore what America’s new political climate means for arts and culture. On July 13, 14 and 15, 2017, we will explore what a changing America means for arts funders, social justice arts organizations, and artist-activists in our communities. Each forum will feature a moderated panel discussion, a pre-talk performance by a leading New York City performing artist, and an audience Q&A.
