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.

Lessons learned on dreaming big and building community, from the creators of this generation's preeminent ideas festival and thought leadership gathering

Join Jeff Rosenthal and Jeremy Schwartz, co-founders of Summit and co-owners of Powder Mountain, as they discuss the trials and tribulations of building a global multidisciplinary, multigenerational ideas festival series, community, and mountaintop village—all of which started with a simple idea. From their experiences you'll learn how to set nearly unattainable goals and find ways to achieve those goals.
