About CreateNYC

In May 2015, Mayor Bill de Blasio signed legislation requiring the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to lead creation of New York City’s first comprehensive cultural plan. From August 2016 to June 2017, New Yorkers from all walks of life will help shape the future of arts and culture in NYC. CreateNYC incorporates this intensive public input and an in-depth evaluation of the city’s cultural assets in a comprehensive cultural plan. CreateNYC is an exciting opportunity to create a long term roadmap for promoting greater equity, access, diversity and vibrancy, and expanding opportunities for all New Yorkers to access and participate in the city’s rich cultural life.
