The RE/Mixed Media Festival is a celebration of collaborative art-making and creative appropriation. It’s the artists’ contribution to the ongoing conversation about remixing, mashups, copyright law, fair use, and the freedom of artists to access their culture in order to add to and build upon it. RE/Mixed Media Festival IV will be held on April 26-27, 2014 at The New School, in cooperation with the School of Media Studies, and Parsons The New School for Design; and at CultureHub, in NYC’s East Village.

Other RE/Mixed events all day, Saturday & Sunday.  The Festival schedule is posted on line at http://remixnyc.com/2014/schedule/
