The Creators Project, a joint collaboration between Intel and VICE, is coming to New York this Saturday and Sunday and throwing a two-day festival of art, music, film, and technology. While in the past, Creators Project events have been fairly exclusive, this weekend’s festival is completely free and open to the public, with access granted by an online RSVP and limited only by sheer space capacity. The Project expects around 20,000 visitors to show up each day of the festival, located in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood.
The line-up for this installment of the Creators Project is extensive and impressive, with artists such as Four Tet, Florence & The Machine, Justice, Nosaj Thing, Atlas Sound, Yuksek, Teen Daze, and more making musical appearances on Saturday. The festivities will continue into Sunday with film screenings, art installments, panels, and more, including a screening of Arcade Fire’s Scenes from the Suburbs collaboration with Spike Jonze and the debut of the psycho-opera “Stop the Virgens” from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O.
For more information, check out the Creators Project’s own page about the event. The event has already reached full capacity and all available RSVPs have been doled out, but if you didn’t get the chance to sign up, never fear!! WPRB representatives will be taking part in the events tomorrow and reporting back to all of us soon.
In the mean time, don’t forget to DONATE to WPRB’s annual membership drive! You’ve still got a few precious hours/days to do so — most notably during LAUREN’S CORNER with LAUREN from 9 to 10 pm EST, coming on right after our annual STATE OF THE STATION address at 8. you won’t wanna miss it. Of course you don’t have to call in to pledge — you can do so on our super convenient pledge drive website; if you’re listening to us on our online stream, this totally… streamlines… the process.
