Mapping Cultural Philanthropy & Real Estate Development

We are creating a map that traces the relationships between cultural institutions in NYC and real estate developers. Many board members and donors at major cultural institutions are the 1% behind re-zoning and gentrification efforts, and Arts and Labor would like to make this visible. Entering donors and board members into Little Sis, a free database that tracks the power elite, we can see connections between culture, business, and government. We aim to create a map that artists and activists can use to put pressure on cultural institutions to act against the gentrification of our city.
