IdeasCity Radio is a collaboration between the New Museum's IdeasCity initiative and Clocktower. IdeasCity Radio’s premise is to exchange, discuss, share, and connect ideas and insights initiated during the IdeasCity Detroit and Athens programs. Hosting live conversations, interviews, and musical performances featuring Detroit and Athens Fellows, participants, and speakers, IdeasCity Radio will bridge the conversation on topics such as public art, social justice, and urban design from Detroit to Athens and vice versa. IdeasCity Radio is a public forum to engage, reflect, and interact for IdeasCity’s local and international community and offers a window into the initiation of ideas for the future of the city.
IdeasCity Radio runs from September 10-24, 2016, and is broadcasted from Clocktower’s space at Pioneer Works in New York and the IdeasCity Athens site, the Athens Conservatory. For the full Athens schedule click: HERE

I don’t think there was one person in the room for whom the resonance of these discussions happening in the ancient seat of democracy against the background of deep humanitarian and financial crises was lost. There was an atmosphere of both passion and of acquiesce to the unknown and unknowable. -- Amah-Rose Abrams, Artnet News
More than an awareness-raising platform, IdeasCity aims for quantifiable change in urban reconstruction through collaboration between artists, designers and policy makers. -- Chloe Stead, Frieze Editorial
