In July 2017, we joined Mayor de Blasio to release CreateNYC, New York City’s first-ever comprehensive cultural plan. Two years later, DCLA released the CreateNYC Action Plan, streamlining the cultural plan’s recommendations to provide greater clarity and transparency.
Through the Building Community Capacity program, community-based development organizations and cultural nonprofits collaborated to survey arts and culture engagement in Bushwick, Far Rockaway, and Morrisania.
The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) is the largest municipal funder of culture in the country and is committed to providing access to art and culture for all New Yorkers.
