With the exception of our 1998 inaugural event at the United Nations, all programs by THE ARTISTS FORUM have been open to the public. We provide unique opportunities for artists to showcase their work, receive recognition for their achievements, broaden professional contacts, and engage creative communities across disciplines. Our programming includes legal, business, and technical panels, television programming, networking events, live and online showcases, juried arts competitions, as well as health and other special events such as our 9/11 Healing programs.
