MoMA PS1 Warm Up 2016 - Set by Louisahhh, Brodinski - July 9, 2016

The weekly MoMA PS1 Warm Up summer dance party is quickly becoming a mini Coachella every Saturday, except it's much closer to home in Long Island City / Queens / New York City.  
Warm Up is every Saturday from June 11 to August 27, from 3pm to 9pm (yes, it's a 6 hour concert, or mini music festival so go early!).  Each show features at least 5 acts so you'll get to experience a wide variety of music genres. Tickets are only $22 if purchased in advanced and can be purchased here. If you are a Long Island City resident, tickets are free on a first come first serve basis.
The 2016 lineup includes live performances and D.J. sets by Joy Orbison + Ben UFO, Doc Scott, Maya Jane Coles, Marcus Marr, Louisahhh, Brodinski, and many international performers you'll find in music venues of Europe.
Warm Up also places music alongside great food and design, including a new courtyard installation, which is a colorful woven rope canopy created by Mexico City-based architecture firm Escobedo Soliz Studio, winner of the annual Young Architects Program.
Here are some of our pictures from the Louisahhh and Brodinski show this month.

Scenes from The Other Festival at Spring Studios in Tribeca NYC - June 2016

The Other Festival, held at the beautiful loft space of Spring Studios in Tribeca, NYC celebrates female ambition, hard-work, creativity.  This years festival brought together makers and creators for an inspirational day that is part concert and part conferencing celebrating where women can meet other ambitiously creative minds.  

This year's talk included an impressive roster of speakers featuring: model Naomi Campbell, jewelry designer Pamela Love, actress/activist Rosario Dawson Maria Battifarano of Rihanna’s Fenty Corp, and designer Cynthia Rowely

In addition to discussions, guests can also meet and connect with other creative female makers at the conference marketplace.  During out time there, we met the founder of Ciara's Kombucha and former stylist of David Bowie who now is a contemporary artist with her own line of leather accessories.  Guests could browse the marketplace while snacking on delicious food prepared by an all female culinary crew.  The lunch at the conference was equally healthy as it was delicious, with gluten free and vegetarian options.

In today's post, we'll share some scenes from the event, which is not to be missed for next year!
