Creative Tech Week NY

Overview

Creative Tech Week NY was a city-wide event that took place in New York City from April 28-May 7 2016. Hyphen Hub was one of the 4 partners that developed the festival which lasted one week. We worked in the integral development of the overall festival and its content, but with a strong focus on producing and organizing the Arts Hub of the festival. CTW was divided into four hubs — Expo, Industry, Arts, and Community — with ancillary activities presented by related organizations throughout the five boroughs.The Arts Hub hosted a week-long series of events, including 30 art and technology installations, 4 evenings where we presented 10 performers working in tech and organized more than 90 panel discussions and individual artist talks.

Goals

Develop a festival that will bring together new media art and creative tech in order to merge under one roof two worlds that many times don't mix but definitely need and can benefit from each other

Process

4 partners each with a unique area of expertise

Additional Information

The festival lasted three years before continuing only focusing on industries. Hyphen Hub was the producer and artistic director of the arts hub which took place in its own building with space for two theaters for talks and performances, exhibitions and a common social area for all the 4 segments of the festival.
