NewCo is a proud supporter of education. We’ve recently joined the Academy of Art’s newly launched Social Media Center alongside other organizations like Weebly, Flipboard, Fyuse, and Tumblr. The Academy’s Social Media Center “offers a series of social media professional development courses, ranging from content development and strategies, to data analytics and management. It’s where social meets creative.”

In Fall of 2015, we had the pleasure of welcoming as NewCo Ambassadors students from San Francisco’s Academy of Art University studying social media with Prof. Stephan Rabimov. Through this educational effort, nearly 50 students volunteered with NewCo’s San Francisco and Oakland festivals. They attended sessions on a range of topics, welcomed NewCo attendees, networked with industry experts, and captured their personal experiences in both word and image for social media and through writing on their experiences as part of a class assignment. Now, we’re proud to highlight the crème de la crème compendium of these students’ efforts on our site. In no particular order, they are:
