Social Innovation Week NYC

Social Innovation Week is a series of exhibitions, demonstrations, and lectures introducing new methods and ideas in Energy, Design, Food, Culture, and Environment (the Urban Landscape). Located in Soho, the pop-up storefront will offer an innovation shop, exhibits and installations, lectures, and hands-on workshops.

WeTheSocial hopes to inspire the next generation of designers, engineers and creative leaders while making the ideas presented accessible to all visitors and participants. Social Innovation Week NYC is the inaugural event and exhibition in a series that will continue on to urban communities nationwide in 2016. Join us!
