Cultural Institutions as Agents of Change

Tuesday, May 2, 2023
08:30 AM - 09:30 AM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Wilshire Garden

With fundamental shifts under way in the physical and digital spaces of culture and life, what should a new generation of cultural institutions look like? How can they embrace the diverse and evolving communities they serve? How can impact-driven organizations reimagine existing spaces and remain relevant? In a post-pandemic world, cultural institutions can act as cornerstones of cultural and financial resurgence. They can build community, spark prosperity, and help solve some of the most pressing issues—from tackling the climate crisis to raising visibility for underrepresented communities to forging the type of empathy that shifts public opinion. Join some of the most influential leaders in the field for a look at the new paradigms driving social change.
