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.

The intangible space of the internet has propelled the most significant cultural shift of the twenty-first century producing, consequently, viral fashion imagery becoming treasured design objects. A cross-disciplinary workshop on using critical design to generate new perspectives on the ubiquitous Internet’s influence on fashion expressions, representations and creativities. It aims at generating alternative future possibilities on the seemingly unavoidable trend of  self-digitization.

Participants of various creative disciplines are to be recruited to engage with the issues creatively in a fashion context. Apart from getting a taste of using fashion to contest realities, the last part of the session will be focused on the fusion of all disciplines. Participants will be encouraged to infuse elements from their disciplines from the curatorial, the spatial, the interactive, the performative and so on as an extension of their creative visions.

Collaborators: Marie Genevieve Cyr, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design, Parsons School of Design, and Carrie Chan, Design Trust / Royal College of Art Fellow in Design Curation
