Museum of the Moving Image
We are thrilled to announce that New York City’s Museum of the Moving Image will serve as our headquarters for the 2017 edition of The SoDA Academy. The museum’s inspiring architecture, light-filled gallery spaces, digital learning suites and expansive courtyard will serve as the perfect backdrop for this year’s event.
The recently transformed museum features a stunning, modern and versatile building by architect Thomas Leeser with spaces that will enable even greater levels of collaboration and delegate interaction this year.
The Academy’s Opening Reception will take place on Sunday evening (November 12, 4-6PM). The location is being finalized from an array of fantastic venue options, so stay tuned for more details as the event approaches!
And in true SoDA style, the conversations initiated during the daytime sessions will continue in a more social setting on the evenings of November 13-14. Details on evening activities will be released in the coming months.
