Times are tough. Now, more than ever, we are all scrambling to keep our arts and culture careers and businesses alive. What lessons can we learn from the young? How do they practice, collaborate, distribute?

May 16th’s Town Hall Meeting is a shout out to all young artists to come and talk with your peers and your elders. Young means any age up to 40 years old. We are looking for an open, honest discussion about how we get through this and build. Who are your people? How do you reach them? What do you give them? What do they give you?

Our goal is to share new ideas and new methods and to bring new people in on the conversation. Come network with your community and contribute your ideas.

The Bronx Council on the Arts provides current information and useful tools to artists, art organizations, creative industry and small businesses in the Bronx. BCA also offers project based grants to arts and community based not-for-profit organizations headquartered in the Bronx as well as to individual artists residing in the borough.

Cultural Strategies Initiative creates project partnerships to demonstrate and measure how arts operate in promoting sustainability and resiliency. CSI projects always target the same outcomes ─ empower the arts and humanity.
