Our Mission

We are a collaborative workspace and community designed to support and connect the next generation of media and tech entrepreneurs, innovators, and artists with industry resources, events, mentorship, and educational opportunities. Join

Magic happens when different groups come together under one roof. New paradigms and platforms emerge as storytellers and entrepreneurs work together to transform the creative process in the digital age.

The center of everything
Brooklyn is home to boundary-shattering creative types from all around the world. It’s also a booming epicenter for the media, entertainment and digital technology sectors. We bring together under one roof — in Brooklyn’s most future-forward neighborhood — creators and entrepreneurs with the common mission of transforming the art of storytelling.

Cross-discipline, cross-platform storytelling
Whether your field of work is film, television, gaming, social media, advertising, design, animation, music, mobile apps, transmedia, and more, we’re here to help you tell your story — through multiple mediums and across powerful new platforms.

Our space in DUMBO
Our 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in DUMBO combines workspaces, classrooms, exhibition venues and a public café, where storytellers, industry professionals and curiosity seekers come together to work, learn, innovate, explore and grow — together.

Incubating innovation
A unique collaboration between the Made in NY business initiative, celebrating entrepreneurial innovation and content creation in New York City, and the Independent Filmmaker Project, the nation’s oldest and largest organization of independent filmmakers, we are a new kind of co-working space and exhibition venue designed to connect and incubate the next generation of artists and creators.

Change surrounds us at every turn, in the cities we live in, the way we work in them, and the stories we create along the way. Come tell us your story. We’ll help you transform it.
