An experimental initiative of the New Museum, NEW INC is a shared workspace and professional development program that brings together over 100 cultural practitioners and creative entrepreneurs, including anchor tenants Rhizome and Columbia University’s GSAPP Incubator.
The operation occupies eight thousand square feet of dedicated office, workshop, social, and presentation space, and each year selects an outstanding interdisciplinary community of one hundred members who are investigating new ideas and developing sustainable practices.
NEW INC offers students interested in art, design, technology, and entrepreneurship an opportunity to get hands-on with the ins and outs of running a small non-profit program within a major contemporary arts institution.
In addition to working closely with NEW INC staff on both long- and short-term projects, interns work with and learn from the cutting-edge cultural producers who make up NEW INC’s community of members.
MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY INTERNSHIP
This internship focuses on creation of media and management of technology within the space. Working directly with the Technology & Operations Administrator, the position involves both video and photo documentation of our events and everyday activities at NEW INC; this includes set-up, pre- and post-production. Interns will also be involved with coordinating trainings and conducting research related to our equipment and fabrication spaces. This is a hands-on internship with the opportunity to potentially develop original content for the right candidate.
NEW INC is not your typical incubator. They are a visionary group of creative practitioners who embrace risk, investigate the undiscovered and undefined, and engage with timely issues and ideas at the intersection of culture and technology. Their community is composed of sole practitioners, studios and start-ups who are building cultural enterprises both big and small. They offer forty full-time and forty part-time memberships a year, and encourage both individuals and teams to apply.
