NEW INC is currently recruiting members for our 2018-2019 cohort (our 5th year!). We are hoping you will share our open call [] on your social media channels leading up to the application deadline, May 13th. We have provided sample copy below for easy sharing. If you know of candidates who would be a good fit, please let me know by completing this recommendation form:

We are currently recruiting part-time (PT) and full-time (FT) applicants into four tracks that support artists and creative technologists working in a variety of fields. The tracks are defined as:

  • Museum Technology (FT): This includes new studios or start-ups that are developing approaches and applications of emerging technology towards increasing audience engagement, improving the visitor experience, expanding reach, developing new approaches to storytelling and inventing novel ways of supporting museums’ educational mission.

  • Social Impact (FT): We are interested in projects that explore and reimagine how we address education, social justice, climate change, urban issues, and other social impact themes in a creative way. Projects may take the form of social enterprises, non-profits, or artistic projects.

  • Immersive Experiences (FT): As the boundaries between the physical and digital worlds become increasingly blurred, we are interested in new studios, start-ups or creative projects that are working with emerging technologies that enable immersive experiences. This may include augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR), or interactive installations.

  • Creative Experiments (FT): This category is focused on investigating new approaches to or use cases for technology through the lens of art and design. We are interested in a broad array of technology and science applications such as AI and machine learning, robotics, biotech, digital manufacturing, wearable technology, and other emerging tech.

  • Community Memberships (PT): This part-time membership is open to all who are working on a new creative project or venture at the intersection of art, design and technology (regardless of whether it aligns with the focus tracks identified for this year). Community Membership includes part-time access to NEW INC and limited access to workshops, talks and Office Hours with guest mentors.
