New Media Incubator

As co-director of The New Media Incubator (Inc) since 2017, we have established the mission and vision for a creative, collaborative and innovative space that provides professional level experiential learning opportunities for students with extensive mentorship from the co-directors. The Inc is a place of exploration and possibility. Instead of asking "what is the 'right' answer?" we ask "what are the possibilities?"

Create

In the New Media Incubator you will find a variety of creative zones.

In the front, we have a collaboration zone where we host guest speakers, workshops, classes, and students who want to work in a creative environment. Students work on creative productions in our editing suite and make videos in our studio and control room. You can even see a 3D printer creating objects that range from dinosaur tchotchkes to prosthetic hands.

At the Inc, we create:

Possibilities. Interactions. Positive experiences. New project concepts.

Collaborate

Our work is grounded in collaboration between students, faculty, and community members. These keywords embody that spirit: Care Open Learn Listen Appreciate Brainstorm Organized Respect Adaptability Team Up Engage

Innovate

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

I'll play it first and tell you what it is later.
