About Watch This Space
From September 13–17, we will explore ideas from local, national, and international leaders and innovators working in public art. This year's symposium will center on public art's relationship to the natural and urban environment, as well as practices for creating work sustainably. We will convene virtually, provide toolkits and resources for sustainability, and host live discussions on technology's role in sustaining arts and cultural work.

Programs include: 
Virtual Sustainability Roundtable: Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 4 p.m., with presentations from Leslie Wright (The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History), Debra Reid (The Henry Ford), and Andy McDowell (Detroit Zoological Society)
Live Discussion on Tech + Art: Wednesday, Sept. 15 hosted on Slack 
Resource Hub: A virtual catalogue of ideas and resources centered on sustainability  

Sessions will be offered by CultureSource and in partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia and Detroit’s Live6 Alliance, and within Design Core Detroit’s Month of Design.
