Join WNYC’s Micropolis in The Greene Space for a face-to-face encounter with New York City. Hosted by Arun Venugopal, Micropolis examines race, gender, ethnicity and urban life in America, in serious and not-so-serious ways.

This season, Arun is back with one-of-a-kind conversations, live performances, and his true-to-form dedication to thoughtful perspectives and levity (because, this is quite a moment).

Micropolis is part of The Greene Space’s ongoing NEXT New York Conversation series. Leadership support is provided by:

The Last Speakers on Earth


There are over 600 languages spoken in New York City. But which are disappearing and what happens when a language is down to its last few speakers? Arun Venugopal hosts a night of performances, audience participation and conversation.
