Open Brain: Heading Back Home

  • 305 West 50th St, Apt 18B New York, NY, 10019 (map)


We're excited to be heading back home for this event. And by home, we mean indoors. Though we love gathering in public to attract other Open Brains, it's starting to get cold outside. Indoor venues also allow us to share film and other artforms, as well as have some drinks! [BYOB]

If you don't know what Open Brain is all about, read on:

Open Brain is the realization of the idea that we all have something worth sharing. Since standard social scenarios don’t provide a consistent space for communal expression, Open Brain creates this space.

Originally conceived as an open mic that would reach beyond the standards of music, poetry, dance, and stand up comedy, Open Brain features all forms of art. This includes arts typically reserved for galleries, including illustration, painting, photography, and film—as well as less conventional forms like storytelling, hardware hacks, software development, cooking, massage therapy, rocket designs, and conversations around everything from artificial intelligence and genetics to the role of art in society.

These salon-style gatherings are neither new nor complicated, but society's present state seems to have forgotten the importance of communal sharing.

It’s up to us to bring it back. Join us every other week to open your brain and share whatever you’ve got.
