United States — June 04, 2024 @ 1:00pm - 2:00pm GMT-05:00

Host Organization and Partners — NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS)


Join the NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS) each month for our virtual Lunch & Learn Series – an intimate conversation with agency staff and special guests on the collections of the Municipal Archives and Library, as well as the history of New York City.

WNYC is turning 100!

From 1924 until 1997, WNYC Radio was owned and operated by the City of New York as the Municipal Broadcasting Station for “Instruction, Enlightenment, and Entertainment.” WNYC turns 100 this year, and its history is intimately related to the City government and the NYC Municipal Archives.

On June 4th, join DORIS’s Michael Lorenzini and WNYC’s Andy Lanset for a discussion on the history and significance of WNYC and the upcoming exhibition, 100 Years of WNYC at the 2024 Photoville Festival. This multimedia installation celebrates the one-hundred-year history of WNYC and includes archival material from the NYC Municipal Archives and the New York Public Radio Archives.

For one week in May, come together to share ideas, discuss solutions, and commit to new levels of citizen participation in government.

Meet the moment. Raise ambition. Rise to the challenge.

The Open Government Challenge is a call to action for all members of OGP to raise ambition in ten areas of open government to help strengthen our democracies. Over the next five years, all members of the Partnership should aim to raise the ambition of reforms in 10 policy areas and demonstrate relevant progress in as many of the areas of the Challenge through their OGP action plans or beyond.We must act together to make a difference, because only when governments, public officials, and civil society work together, we see more ambitious and impactful reforms that transform our communities.

It’s our time to meet the moment. Let’s use Open Gov Week to take on the the Open Gov Challenge.
