IDEAS CITY 2013 is a unique biennial event in New York City including a conference with visionaries and leaders, an innovative StreetFest around the Bowery, and hundreds of independent projects. Formerly known as the Festival of Ideas for the New City, the 2011 event brought together over 200 organizations and attracted 70,000 visitors. This ambitious initiative is built upon the core belief that arts and culture constitute a driving force behind the vitality of urban centers worldwide.
The theme for IDEAS CITY 2013 is Untapped Capital. As the world’s resources continue to be endangered, depleted, and destroyed, we all need to imagine new solutions and develop innovative approaches and practices. Rather than focusing on deficits, IDEAS CITY 2013 will encourage intensive examination of surplus resources that may be under-recognized or underutilized: Untapped Capital. There are many ways of thinking about what might define “untapped capital,” ranging from people and raw materials, to ideas, networks, varied resources, and modes of communication. The topic of Untapped Capital provides a touchstone for alternative thinking about new methodologies, new solutions, and new goals.
This is an open application; please feel free to share it with other downtown NYC organizations.
