In June 2015, the Center for Urban Future published its second Creative New York report, which tracks trends in New York’s creative sector over a ten-year period and offers recommendations for real estate affordability, government funding and support, economic and community development, and diversity and inclusivity. This session, moderated by the researcher Adam Forman, puts members of the report’s advisory board into conversation about the study’s findings and its implications for dance artists and companies. He started the discussion by asking panel speakers: Are you an optimist or pessimist about the future of dance in NYC?
We continued the discussion with audience members and one of the featured speakers, Potri Ranka Manis, Founder and Artistic Director of Kinding Sindaw Melayu Heritage.
This post is part of a series of interviews conducted at the Dance/NYC 2016 Symposium.
