The Institute of Cultural Activism International are launching a new CDE Hub in the New York region to expand the network of cultural activists, be it individual or collective.

The New York Hub intends to engage a broad community of artists, collectives and institutions, regionally, while continuing to expand our international programming. We are working toward merging an eclectic group of arts/culture venues and local initiatives to nurture change within the community. Our US network while concentrated in the New York City, Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain area, spans the US. Our core group consists of conceptual artists, filmmakers, installation and immersive creatives. Our center in the New York Catskills includes artist-led programming.

Our prominent TUNING FORK interview series, a zoom format and live social media broadcast featuring cultural activists and collectives recently completed its 41st Episode. Regionally, we are soon launching our biweekly radio program, RADIO ART and our news media articles called WHY ART.  We are a fiscal tax-exempt sponsor for aligned multi-disciplinary projects.
