About LMCC’s River to River Festival
River To River 2017 celebrates New York City’s status as a cultural capital of the world and a crossroads for residents and visitors of diverse origins, traditions and perspectives. It embraces the values of an interdependent, global city in which all are welcome and encouraged to participate in the free exchange of ideas, regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, gender identity or sexual orientation. The arts are singular in their power to connect, and artists play an essential role in every community, helping to reflect on the past, interpret the present and imagine a shared future.

Event sponsored by Goldman Sachs, Borough of Manhattan Community College and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
