Roo Shamin

I have been building culture-driven spaces in NYC since 2010. I currently am the Member Experience Manager at Impact Hub NYC. I have previously worked with communities of experimental artists at places like The Music Building, NEW INC, and several other art spaces around the city and boros. I am most interested in the pros and cons of gentrification and technology on NYC's cultural innovation, and am also trying to raise awareness about diversity and race challenges that impede cultural development.
