About IDEAS CITY
IDEAS CITY is a major collaborative initiative between hundreds of arts, education, and civic organizations centered on the belief that culture is fundamentally vital to urban growth and innovation. This keynote address will anchor three days of conferences, debates, performances, activities on the street, and artistic interventions that will transform the Bowery neighborhood in downtown Manhattan into a multi-platform incubator that will examine urban issues, propose solutions, and seed concrete actions. The Festival will take place May 28–30, 2015, and this year’s theme—The Invisible City—will explore questions of transparency and surveillance, citizenship and representation, expression and suppression, and the enduring quest for visibility.
