YOUNG CULTURAL INNOVATORS FORUM

Past Program

Overview

More than 80 percent of Americans – and more than 80 percent of Americans with low incomes – live in metropolitan areas. This puts cities on the frontline of the most pressing challenges and inequalities within American society. Baltimore, Detroit, Memphis, and New Orleans are all contending with social inequality, weak public education systems, high unemployment levels, economic disparities, and a general lack of public support for the cultural sector. Imaginative solutions are being led by young cultural innovators who are demonstrating the creative vision and energy needed for social improvement and sustainable development in their communities. 

The fourth US regional meeting of the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators follows on from the annual program held in Salzburg and events in Memphis (2019), New Orleans (2018), and Detroit (2017), supported by The Kresge Foundation.
