ICRAVE’s Long Table Discussion: New York & The Future of Art
This past Wednesday, NoMad design firm ICRAVE, headed by Lionel Ohayon, hosted another event in its Imprimatur series. This time it was a long-table discussion about the future of art institutions and artists in New York City. The conversation brought together a wide range of artists, city officials, venue managers and decision makers. The aim was to unpack strategies to sustain New York’s artistic and creative communities in the face of increased economic pressures that are making NYC unaffordable for many.
The event, held at iCrave’s meeting space, provided guests with an open format to share and engage in fresh ideas, as well as an opportunity to meet fellow artists, while enjoying drinks and refreshments.
It is exciting that a conversation like this is taking place right here in NoMad — a district driven to preserve and foster an environment that has always welcomed creative people. NoMad is proving to be a place where new economic vitality can be wedded to the area’s rich historic legacy if we work together as a community.
