Designing Human Connection

May 16, 12:00 am - May 23, 12:00 am

NYC will be transformed into a 5 and Go! playground for NYCxDESIGN enabling players to experience the magic of quick bursts of human connection throughout the city. You and a friend may be challenged to anything from learning the backstory of a local designer to creating with other amazing humans in New York City.

5 and Go!’s NYCxDESIGN challenges will be accessible in any of the five boroughs from May 16th to May 23rd.

5 and Go! is a mobile app that enhances connection by facilitating positive, quick, in-person interactions that heighten mood and are essential to our mental and physical health. It is free to download and all NYCxDESIGN challenges will be free to play. Grab a friend and join us!
