If you’ll be in New York on April 3rd, I can’t recommend the DIY Days conference highly enough. It’s free, but registration runs out quickly, so head on over to DIY Days and register now.

The WorkBook Project and the New School present DIY DAYS NYC. On Saturday April 3rd DIY DAYS comes to the New School in NYC for a day of talks, workshops and networking focused on creativity in the digital age. The focus of the day will be how those working in film, music, gaming, design, and software can fund, create, distribute and sustain from their creative efforts.

DIY Days is free because it’s run by volunteers, so:

If you live in the NYC area and are interested in lending a hand to help make DIY DAYS NYC possible we’re looking for volunteers. Send email to work [@] workbookproject dot com with the subject “volunteer in NYC.”
