Our Program Leadership Council provides financial and content support for the Institute’s semi-annual public program festivals. Each fall and spring, Van Alen hosts energetic, festival-style seasons of public events in New York City for a broad audience of urban enthusiasts and professionals. The programs engage a diverse range of topics designed to provoke, enlighten, question, and critically examine the ideas of Van Alen’s multi-year inquiry Elsewhere: Escape and the Urban Landscape.
