Facilitated by Janet Rodriguez. Presented by Anita Durst, founder, Chashama; Heather Hitchens, executive director, New York State Council on the Arts; Scott Metzner, principal, Janus Properties; Mary Puryear, program director, Prudential Foundation.

A discussion among private, public and corporate funders; a developer; and an artist committed to developing communities with and for artists. The discussion will focus on public and private partnerships between developers and the arts in economically challenged neighborhoods. The session will start with a walk through the industrial area surrounding the Mink Building which includes an artists collective, Chashama, and participants will convene at the renovated Mink Building in Harlem.

Space is limited for these Monday off-site sessions, so tickets are required and we recommend that you sign up in advance at the conference online registration application. Remaining tickets will be available at the registration desk on Monday morning. When the tickets for a session are all gone, you will know that session is full, and can make another choice.

Participants will travel to offsite sessions by subway guided by local hosts. Your ticket will indicate when and where to meet your session group.
