About this Event

Designing Dynamic Spaces

Celebrations and Provocations: Building Inclusive Communities in Art & Tech

NEW INC, Pioneer Works and A/D/O invite you to join us at the New Museum for an exciting program, Designing Dynamic Spaces. Aimed at facilitating dialogue and sharing both stories and resources for the creation of dynamic, diverse and inclusive practices in cultural and creative spaces that support entrepreneurship through the lens of art, design, hardware, and fabrication across NYC. This program invites members of the art, tech, and hardware communities to join us for an afternoon of case study presentations, culminating in a panel and networking.

This program is being offered as part of NEW INC’s programmatic commitment to Futureworks Shops, and will interrogate strategies for building towards a more inclusive creative economy, investigating the mechanics and behaviors that will cultivate and sustain diverse communities.

The program will kick off with a presentation and critique of our Equity Pledge, a standing commitment to diversity and inclusion developed by NEW INC, and mutually agreed upon between organizations that are part of the Futureworks Shops network. The Pledge will act as a living commitment beyond the program, and we invite participants to join us in formalizing this commitment.

We will then hear case studies and present a panel by women and POC in the art, tech and hardware space. Guest speakers have navigated shops and shared creative spaces, and have cultivated community while living the reality that diversity is a problem in the tech and hardware landscape.
