REMIX Summit at Google, MoMa, and Bloomberg: New York City – September 17 - 19, 2014

The REMIX Summit in New York City brought together some of the most creative and innovative thinkers working at the intersection of culture and technology.  Instead of specialized industry conferences that focus on either tech or culture, the REMIX Summit brought together interdisciplinary practitioners of these two fields.  For professionals and entrepreneurs who are using advances in mobile and internet technology to change the way culture, arts, and ideas are created, distributed, and consumed – the REMIX Summit is the premier event to attend to learn, see, and discover the best new work out there through talks given by founders, top creative thinkers, and executives of key cultural institutions and notable start-ups.

The 2014 REMIX Summit in NYC was hosted at three venues known for their cutting edge approach to applying technology to media; attendees spent each day of the conference at Google, MoMa, and Bloomberg.  Speakers this year included the founders and executives of innovative cultural institutions and technology platforms, such as Behance, Paddle8, Metropolitan Museum of the Arts, WNYC Radio, Cirque Du Soleil, the New Museum, Cool Hunting, littleBits, Kickstarter, American Express, Frieze Art Fair, and more. 

Each speaker gave the summit attendees an inside view into the creative process of the visions they work on and help bring to life for their companies.  Major topics covered in this year’s summit include crowd-funding, etc.  What you get out of the REMIX Summit are a great variety of ideas, insights, and possibilities that can inspire you to push the boundary of what you can do with technology to enhance the experience of art and culture.
