What role do artists play in creating and defining resilient, livable, and vibrant communities? MAS’s Road to Resilience series last Fall explored the cultural community’s response to and ongoing recovery efforts around Superstorm Sandy. In this Arts Forum, panelists consider the role of artists as agents for resilient rebuilding and sustainable communities. 

Panelists include Kemi Ilesanmi of The Laundromat Project; Artist Dustin YellinMartin Rosengaard, artist and Wooloo.org co-founder; and Lisa Kim, cultural affairs director for Two Trees Management. Richard Flood, New Museum director of special projects and curator at large, will moderate.


About the Arts and Policy Incubator

The work of many photographers, visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, poets and writers deals with many of the same challenges that keep policy makers up at night.  At the same time, many of the policy thinkers and thought leaders in the World Policy community are seeking creative ways to engage more people in solving some of the world’s biggest challenges. The World Policy Institute is creating an arts and policy incubator through which artists whose work addresses social challenges can collaborate with policy thought leaders to find creative ways to reach hearts & minds –and, in turn, hands and feet. “Illuminating the Arts-Policy Nexus” documents the Incubator through a series on the World Policy Blog.
