22:48IDEAS CITY Festival will take Over Downtown Manhattan
New York, NY…The New Museum and the Executive Committee of IDEAS CITY announced that the second IDEAS CITY Festival will take place in downtown Manhattan from May 1–4, 2013. IDEAS CITY was founded in 2011 by the New Museum, New York, as an unprecedented collaborative initiative that involves hundreds of arts, education, and community organizations in an ongoing, multi-platform discussion on the future of cities around the globe. Guided by the belief that arts and culture are essential to the continued health and vitality of urban centers everywhere, IDEAS CITY partners work together to exchange ideas, propose solutions, share with the public, and effect change.
IDEAS CITY is a biennial Festival in New York City with additional annual Global Conferences organized in key urban centers around the world. IDEAS CITY: Istanbul took place in the fall of 2012 and IDEAS CITY: São Paulo will be held in fall 2013. These global events help to identify urgent issues and invite an ever-growing number of international thought leaders to participate in the initiative. This year, the overarching theme is Untapped Capital—under-recognized and underutilized resources and surpluses that can be harnessed as catalysts for change.
The IDEAS CITY Festival in New York begins on Wednesday May 1 with a Keynote address by Joi Ito,
Director of MIT Media Lab, followed by a daylong Conference on Thursday May 2, with mayors and visionary.
