Spacing Out: Innovative Urban Uses of Cultural Space
ART NY's South Oxford Space
On August 15 Arts & Democracy Project joined Naturally Occurring Cultural Districts - NY (NOCD-NY) and Urban Bush Women to cosponsor Spacing Out: Innovative Uses of Urban Cultura Space at the South Oxford Space.
Seven case studies, commissioned by NOCD-NY functioned as catalysts for discussion in this interactive forum. The case studies primarily focus on New York City, with examples from all five boros, practical resources, and policy recommendations. Exemplary practices from elsewhere in the U.S. will also be incuded in them.
