A queen city in U.S. Midwest, Cincinnati used to be a glittering center of philanthropy, culture, and the arts. Over time the city’s culture was shaped by business behemoths that transformed the city’s identity, job by job – into a company town.
Today there’s the stirrings of an art renaissance. New voices has emerged that reimagine the city as a place for the interplay between the aesthetics, historical culture, and creativity.
Can an art renaissance reimagine the city’s contemporary identity?
Together with local voices from old and new business, arts and culture, as well as performances by the Mamluft Dance Company and Concert Nova, we will open a space to discuss, how art can be incorporated at the center of Cincy’s future as a city to live and work in.
