When the 92nd Street Y launches its ambitious five-week-long project, “Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezin” on Jan. 9, it will mark a significant change in the way one of the city’s most esteemed arts institutions does its work. For the first time in its history, the Y’s Tisch Center for the Arts is drawing on nearly all of the resources of 92Y's many departments to present an interdisciplinary series of programs that will include concerts, lectures, readings, classes, film screenings and dance performances.
