Storefront for Art and Architecture was proud to participate as one of the Organizing Partners in the Festival of Ideas for The New City.


The festival transformed downtown Manhattan into a dynamic laboratory for creative thinking and action, bringing together scores of participants and public events and working together to affect change. The Festival harnessed the power of the creative community to imagine the future and explore the ideas destined to shape it. It took place from May 4-8, 2011 in locations around Downtown Manhattan in an area that spanned from East to West, including the Lower East Side, the East Village, Soho, Nolita, and Chinatown – and served as a platform for artists, writers, architects, engineers, designers, urban farmers, planners, and leaders in various disciplines to exchange ideas, propose solutions, create new problems, and invite the public to participate.
