NEW INC COMMUNITY VALUES
"How might we keep our community values tangible and live in the co-working space?"
2017



NEW INC is the first museum-led cultural incubator, founded in 2014 by the New Museum in New York City. It supports an interdisciplinary cohort of members–creative practitioners developing businesses and building projects. It's a community aiming to "foster cultural value, not just capital value." At the start of each yearly cohort, all the members of NEW INC participate in a two-week bootcamp. One of the sessions during the bootcamp is dresearch to address these questions. The research process entailed not interviews or field notes but one phase involved workshops for members who use the co-working space and in another phase of research, a series of objects and physical prompts were installed in the office to prompt members to express their day to day experiences with the community values.
