For the second time, University Settlement is excited to collaborate with the New Museum's Biennial IDEAS CITY. For the first festival in 2011, Settlement programs at the Houston Street Center set up creative projects for festival goers, and Performance Project artists delighted audiences with captivating performances. Check out our expanded participation in this year's festival, which explores the Untapped Capital in our City. Why not spend the weekend with US?
