Picnic Salon, New York


A number of Eyebeamers are participating in Picnic Salon, New York organised by Amsterdam's PICNIC gathering and the Waag Society, at the New Museum on Monday June 29,2009.

We'll be contributing to the closed Creative Workshop and Brainstorm session, bringing together Dutch and NYC Creative, discussing topics such as: What is the role of design and creative technologies in the future of our cities? Augmented, ubiquitous, real-time, broadband and smart technologies have a role in shaping the lives of many. What future will this lead to and how can we put these technologies to work for us? What is the shared agenda for Amsterdam and New York?

Amanda McDonald Crowley, Eyebeam's ED will co-host the closed roundtable discussion on sustainability with the Frank Kresin, Program Manager at Waag Society. Rebecca Bray will be giving a brief presentation on the panel "Moving Toward Sustainable Design & Economy" during the afternoon session.
