Join Dance/NYC, the Archive of New York City Cultural Policy, and the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, to discuss the state and future potential of City support for dancers and the dance community. This is the launch event for the Cultural Policy Archive, a new advocacy resource for artists and cultural organizations and timed to inform cultural planning underway by the City of New York. Leaders of dance centers, established and emerging, in all five boroughs share their histories of City support and what they are hearing from artists about needs and opportunities for City support now. #townhall #culturalarchive
