Presented By

Presented by The LEVIN Institute, The New York Academy of Sciences, and The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation


New York is one of the world’s cultural leaders.

  • What is needed to sustain and strengthen this leadership and exploit global opportunities?

Innovate New York:

This is the fifth event in the Innovate New York series of panel discussions exploring why New York is not widely known as a hub of innovation, despite its acknowledged leadership in many fields. Examining the role of innovation across fields from finance to arts and culture, this series has convened leaders in science, technology, finance, and business with the public to discuss New York's strengths, opportunities, and challenges.

Innovate New York sessions are held at the Levin Institute’s Global Classroom, a unique theater-in-the round venue, and moderated by Levin’s President, Garrick Utley, whose talent for evoking intense dialogue with both panelists and the audience will drive the discussions. Panelists will include Reynold Levy, President of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; Kate D. Levin, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; and Tom Finkelpearl, Executive Director of the Queens Museum of Art.

Innovate New York is a partnership of The LEVIN Institute and the New York Academy of Sciences, and is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
