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.

Bocce USQ is the NYC backyard we never had but always wanted. Located in the heart of Union Square Park, it's a place for our neighbors to escape, be outside, enjoy ridiculously good Italian food, refreshing drinks, a little sun, a little shade, and some (mostly) friendly competition on the bocce court.
