Projects And Ideas To Shape The Future Of Cities
A gathering of innovative mayors, designers, and urban artists is looking to inspire new modes of thinking for the evolution of cities.
The Festival Of Ideas For The New City is a multi-day event being held May 4-8 in New York City to both creatively imagine the future of cities and to enable the ideas that will help shape them. The festival takes shape in three forms; first is a series of conference discussions, including notable mayors of transformative cities, design thinkers and socially-minded urban architects. Second is a minimal-waste street festival where innovative grassroots organizations will model their products and practices over the course of the festival. The third element of the festival is a series of artist projects featured throughout the city that reflect and inspire the themes of the festival, sparking new innovation among thinkers interested in changing cities for the better.
