Some notes on the Mayoral Forum on Arts and Culture by Bret McCabe

“Artists teach these classes, often as adjunct professors, which is higher-education speak for itinerant labor. Many of these colleges/universities also see themselves as anchor institutions in the city’s ongoing revitalization efforts, and members of their leadership teams serve on the boards and executive committees of local nonprofits and arts organizations and the like. Anchor institution development plans/deals sometimes come with tax breaks or public funds or both, and many local universities—like local companies and the state—have some form of local hiring initiatives.”
