NEW INC is a shared workspace and professional development program designed to support creative practitioners working in the areas of art, technology, and design — housed in the Mew Museum. They are staking their claim as “the first museum-led incubator” and leveraging their access to the museum, artists-in-residence, museum specific programs, and their partner, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.

In addition to the space and access to the Museum’s community, the program will develop a 12 month program geared toward professional development, which will include business training, skill development, lectures, seminars, and workshops, as well as peer-to-peer knowledge exchange through networking and community building opportunities.

The program just started accepting applications on April 1st and is set to launch this summer with a community of about 100 members.
