NYU Wagner Review and NYU Arts & Culture Network are collaborating on a call for proposals. NYU graduate students are invited to submit a policy proposal, no more than 2 pages, outlining how the next NYC mayor’s policy agenda can support arts and culture institutions, projects, and programs. Students are invited to consider the following questions: 

  • Can participation in the arts and other cultural events help increase civic engagement and dialogue? 
  • How should the city reinvigorate arts and culture industries following COVID-19? 
  • What policies or best practices should the city/its partner organizations consider in light of the racial equity movement that has gained momentum across the field over the past eighteen months? 
  • Consider the intersections between arts & culture and the following: 
    • Community organizing 
    • Social innovation
    • Healthcare 
    • Urban planning 
    • Education 
    • Finance 

Our goal is for participants to produce well-researched, realistic policy recommendations. You may submit your proposal here. We will be accepting proposals on a rolling basis. Students are encouraged to submit here by November 30. Questions? Please email the Wagner Review at Wagner.Review@gmail.com
