What drew you to the MA in Arts Politics?

With my academic background in public policy and experience of working at a contemporary art gallery in Tokyo, I was looking for a master's program that could build upon my former training. Upon finding the Arts Politics department at NYU, it seemed to be the ideal environment in which I could further my interests in an interdisciplinary manner.
