StreetFest - PHOTOBLOG


On Saturday, May 4, artists, architects, poets, technologists, entrepreneurs, and inventors shared their ideas and invited participants to actively shape their city and involve themselves in its urban improvement. StreetFest served as the grand finale of the New Museum’s ‘Ideas City’ festival, a four-day conference featuring workshops and more than one hundred independent and public events that are forums for proposing solutions and accelerating creativity.
