The AR/VR Garage company, DOTDOT have been invited to participate in the 2017-18 NEW INC Cultural Incubator in New York. NEW INC alumni include some of the world’s leading virtual reality practitioners. The DOTDOT team are thrilled to join the new cohort, and will be splitting their time between New Zealand and New York City.

Over eighty members working at the intersection of art, design, technology, and entrepreneurship
will gain access to NEW INC’s yearlong professional development program, new and upgraded
equipment and resources, and an expanding network of mentors.

The members this year range from individual practitioners such as artists, designers, and
storytellers, to collectives, studios, nonprofits, and startups. In keeping with NEW INC’s mission
to foster cultural value, many of the members are committed to projects that prioritize social
impact, addressing issues of surveillance, climate change, discrimination, disability, and access,
among other pressing humanitarian concerns.

Over the course of the twelve-month program, NEW INC members receive professional
development training and mentorship to support their project development and individual
growth. Previous members have presented work at Art Basel Miami Beach, Sundance Film
Festival, SXSW, the Festival de Cannes, Tribeca Film Festival, SIGGRAPH, Moogfest, and
Panorama Music Festival, and have been recognized as emerging leaders in their respective
industries. Members also have an opportunity to present their work at NEW INC’s Demo Day
presentations.
