Wed, Jun 20 @ 8:00 am - Fri, Jun 22 @ 5:00 pm
Many city leaders now acknowledge that culture helps create thriving urban centers and the political and economic influence of the world’s leading cities puts them in a unique position to set a global agenda for sustainable urban development.
Deb Johnson, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator will be attending The World Cities Culture Forum (WCCF) representing New York city. The World Cities Culture Forum convenes and provides a way for policy makers in 32 key cities to share research and intelligence, and explore the vital role of culture in their future prosperity.
Forum members collaborate via a program of events including themed symposia, regional summits and workshops. These events feed in to the annual World Cities Culture Summit. Hosted on a rotating basis by member cities, this unique gathering allows city leaders to share ideas and knowledge about the role of culture as an organizing principle for the sustainable city of the future.
