How are the arts, arts education, and creativity best supported in 21st century America? As citizens, how can we use our voices and resources to shape culture and education? Charles Best (Founder and CEO, DonorsChoose.org) and Yancey Strickler (Co-Founder, Kickstarter), both of whom have pioneered visionary crowd-funding platforms, discuss contemporary models for innovation and development in the arts, and a vision for democratic engagement with cultural enterprise. This conversation was moderated by Darren Walker (Vice President, Ford Foundation).
