Cities are confronting enormous challenges, socially, economically, and of course environmentally. The root cause of this is population whether it’s over populated or in decline like Detroit, urban centers are in search of solutions to resolve these issues.
To address these problems, New Museum launched IDEAS CITY in 2011 bringing together creative minds to explore new concepts around arts and culture as the key to improve life in cities. The festival returns May 1st for four days with the theme “Discover Untapped Capital.” The festival describes the theme as “resources that are under-recognized or underutilized in our cities.” The program include conferences, workshops and a street fair on Bowery with participants that include + Pool, Architizer, Bike Mind, Cabinet Mag, Friends of the High Line, Kickstarter, StoryCorps, Snarkitecure, Red Hook Criterium, and much more.
