swissnex Labs New York Launches This Fall

swissnex Labs New York is an immersive skill-building and prototyping program that focuses on the rapidly evolving media landscape. Over the course of a two-week session, participants will explore emerging media trends, participate in content creation workshops and hear from practitioners at the cutting edge of New York’s media ecosystem. Each participant will leave the program with a strong grasp of current media trends and the tools needed to implement new strategies — either in their current role or as the next step in their career.
