The NYU Future Arts Initiative (FAI) brings together and engages musicians, researchers, educators, arts leaders, students and partner organizations to envision, experiment, and explore the future of arts careers across the lifespan. We actively seek collaborators and partners in the US and around the world.

Housed at NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions, the FAI offers educational and professional development workshops, courses, consulting, and contract research services to non-profit and industry partners sharing our expertise in arts education, entrepreneurship, technology, research and design. We implement a collaborative design process, engaging stakeholders and commissioning partners throughout from problem scoping, research and learning design, through to reporting and dissemination.
