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.

Emergent Transdisciplinary Design: In celebration of 100 years of experimentalism at The New School, we will explore the role that collective processes can play in remaking design teaching and learning in a time of complexity. The session will start with a short overview of The New School’s history of educational innovation. After that, students will lead their classmates and guests through a coordinated, small-group brainstorming session to explore new modalities of classroom learning, building on the concept of self-organizing systems. Can we collectively envision new forms of design education at The New School that are student-led, unplanned, and emergent?
