• Carnegie Hall and the Los Angeles–based organization Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network (AIYN) lead Create Justice: A National Discussion on Arts and Justice, the first national initiative focused exclusively on the intersection of arts and juvenile justice. A series of three Create Justice forums will bring together thought leaders, artists, representatives from non-profit and government agencies, and policymakers from across the U.S. with the aim of developing collective impact strategies to help our most at-risk children reach their full potential through opportunities in the arts. The series of forums began on March 23 and 24, 2017 at Carnegie Hall, continues on September 25 and 26, 2017 in Los Angeles, and concludes in March 2018, with a culminating event at Carnegie Hall.
