The City provides with a unique opportunity to create and be created in many different ways. Identities and cultures become an indentifying marker against a backdrop of individuality. Against the backdrop of skyscrapers, new opportunities are born. In these intersections paintings, literature, architecture, and performance, amongst many other mediums we find a complex, multi-faceted and often fragmented collage of cultures forming a snapshot of human existence. Intersections serve as a reminder of where humanity becomes a cosmopolitan endeavor. At our conference we will discuss these connections.
