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.

Mental Health is an important yet sometimes overlooked wellness activation in our society at large. Within the black community here in America, this avenue of health has a myriad of internal and external factors that attribute to the struggles of overcoming its damaging grasp. Throughout time, black creatives have punctured this culture but with the weight and struggle of so many social injustices that are still being fought.
Join us, The Parsons Black Alumni group as we discuss the significant ways black creatives can protect their mental health.

The ultimate goal is to overcome the adversities and successfully live out our passion as creatives with a clear mind, body, and soul.
