IdeasCity > Info > About


IdeasCity is a collaborative, civic, and creative platform that starts from the premise that art and culture are essential to the future vitality of cities. This international initiative provides a forum for designers, artists, technologists, and policymakers to exchange ideas, identify challenges, propose solutions, and engage the public’s participation. The initiative was cofounded by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, and Karen Wong, Deputy Director, the New Museum.
