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.

Matcha Bar

Brothers Max & Graham Fortgang founded MatchaBar in 2014, establishing the first  matcha cafe in the country. Two years later, they launched the world’s first ceremonial grade bottled matcha. With cafes in New York & Los Angeles and the MatchaFam behind them, the brothers embarked on a mission to share better energy with the world.
We are proud to serve our very own blend of ceremonial grade matcha sourced directly from a family business in Kagoshima, Japan. This partnership is the foundation of our business and we make a pilgrimage to the farm every May for the spring harvest! All of our matcha is blended by a 10th grade “chasi” (tea master), one of 10 in the world with this certification!
