WHDC Arts Public Forum 8/26 (Virtual)

August 26, 2021 @ 11:00 pm - August 27, 2021 @ 12:00 am


The West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC) seeks input from local residents, artists, and arts organizations for its planning efforts to establish a local nonprofit organization to nurture the local artist and cultural sector. This virtual Arts Public Forum (8/26) is led by professional consultants who will guide attendees through the brainstorming process toward the goal of a viable blueprint for a West Harlem arts umbrella service organization.

In addition to virtual public forums, WHDC is conducting an Arts Services Survey to better understand the impact and role of arts in MCD9 and surrounding neighborhoods. Your response will help WHDC to more effectively plan the services and programs to be provided by the future arts organization.

West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC), busca la opinión de los residentes locales, artistas y organizaciones artísticas para sus esfuerzos de planificación para establecer una organización sin fines de lucro local con el objetivo de apoyar al sector artístico y cultural del oeste de Harlem (West Harlem). Además de los foros públicos virtuales que se llevarán a cabo durante el verano de 2021, WHDC publicará la Encuesta de servicios artísticos adjunta para comprender mejor el impacto y el papel de las artes en MCD9 (distrito de la junta comunitaria #9) y los vecindarios circundantes. Sus respuestas a la encuesta ayudarán a WHDC a mejorar sus servicios y fortalecer el entorno artístico y cultural de la comunidad de artistas, organizaciones artísticas, residentes y visitantes de West Harlem.
