Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

The Festival of New is free and open to all.

This Methods Module will focus on arts education and is coupled with a Collaborative Research Studi (CRS): Projects course. CRS combines research and civic engagement to offer an experiential, community partnership-based research project that requires work both inside the classroom and in the field to create positive change. Each CRS focuses on a specific type of research method and a specific community or constituency in the metro New York City area. Participants learn skills that allow them to do research, which inform both their understanding of contemporary civic and community challenges and their performative practice. This class allows students to answer the following questions: What is the intersection of theater practice/dramaturgic research methods and civic engagement? How can I use my dramatic arts techniques, skills, and design thinking to create positive change inside and outside of the theater environment? Students are challenged in this class to work independently and collaboratively with community members. They are also guided step-by-step through the research and creative processes, from qualitative and field research to concept visualization and evaluation.
