Now What? The Future of New Jewish Culture

There's a great project coming from our friends at the Posen Foundation. It's called Speakers' Lab and the first Speakers' Lab event is a 'town hall' conversation about new Jewish culture on May 15th.

But Speakers' Lab isn't just about events. They've got a super snazzy website with artist interviews, panelist statements and other really cool content. Call me totally biased and partial just because I'm one of the panelists, but I'm really diggin' it.

Here's their description of the event:

Ten years ago, a new generation of young, proud, irreverent Jewish artists and writers began redefining American Jewish identity. The movement was called New Jewish Culture, and it created an explosion of music, literature and art that pushed the boundaries of American Jewish identity. 
But after recent foldings of major New Jewish Culture enterprises, the culture is at a crossroads. What is its future? What can emerging Jewish artists expect from the next decade? Join us on May 15th at 7pm at the 14th Street Y for a moderated town hall event with nine panelists at the forefront of New Jewish Culture. Raise concerns. Ask questions. Join the conversation. 
Free and open to the public. Reserve a ticket now!
