The Future of Arts and Culture in CNY

Let your voices be heard!

CNY Arts wants to hear from you! As part of ENGAGE CNY, we are conducting facilitated forums for arts, culture, and heritage groups across our region, as well as for individual artists, historians, and culture providers.

These forums focus on the needs of local artists, the future of arts and culture in our region, challenges faced by our arts community, and strategies to define our regional cultural identity.

ENGAGE CNY is a project that can transform the cultural landscape of Central New York, and input from arts and culture providers of every shape and size is crucial to the success of the project.
