For the last decade, Gonzalo Casals, an aspiring ‘neighborhoodist’, has been exploring cultural production as a vehicle to foster empowerment, social capital, civic participation and community development.
Through his work at El Museo del Barrio, and now at Friends of The High Line and NOCD-NY, he joins the leadership of a generation of cultural workers that are redefining the civic role of cultural organizations and their relationship with communities, neighborhoods and cities.
Gonzalo teaches arts administration at Baruch College, and Cultural Policy at Hunter College. He holds a masters in Architecture and Design, (Universidad de Belgrano), an MA in Art History and Museum Studies (CCNY, CUNY), and he is currently working towards a degree on Urban Affairs (Hunter College, CUNY). His experience ranges from innovative programming design, authentic engagement strategies and progressive cultural policy.
