A series of FREE events exploring spaces and formats

In 2012, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, in partnership with Andrea Clearfield and artists and presenters from multiple disciplines, created the “New Spaces / New Formats” research group.

The projects presented at the Christ Church and Neighborhood House during the week of September 24–29, 2013 is a culmination of this research.
