Save the Date for MAS Summit for New York City
June 13th, 2012, 7:30 am
On October 18 and 19 at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, innovative city shapers and thought leaders will gather as the Municipal Art Society presents the third annual MAS Summit for New York City. This forum of ideas surrounding planning, design and infrastructure; preservation and sustainability; arts and cultural development, and community engagement will feature more than 75 speakers over the two days and highlight trailblazing initiatives in New York and other cities across the globe. To maintain its stature as one of the world’s great global cities, New York City must continue to cultivate opportunity and nurture innovation in all spheres. This year’s Summit themes—Development, Density and Diversity—explore the balancing act of users and uses and the challenge of building a globally competitive city that is socially, economically and environmentally resilient—and livable—for all New Yorkers. During the Summit, MAS will release its third annual Survey on Livability, which reports the perceptions, concerns and experiences of livability by New Yorkers from across the five boroughs. In addition, this year’s MASterworks Awards winners will be feted during an evening reception on October 18. The event will also provide special opportunities for attendees to network and exchange ideas. Tickets will soon be available. Please stay tuned for more details!
