Culture Forward

Culture Forward is the result of a year-long collaborative effort between the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance to create a roadmap to secure the future of culture in Downtown Brooklyn. Over 100 stakeholders including residents, cultural organizations, government agencies, local business, real estate and other not-for-profit entities participated in a series of planning sessions and interviews to formulate the ideas that underpin Culture Forward. The plan recommends 13 initiatives ranging from the development of affordable artist studio space to fellowship programs with local colleges and universities.
