Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Printed tickets are not needed. Please have your electronic ticket ready so that we can easily scan you at the door and get your Nerdy Thursday experience started as quickly as possible.

Where and when is Nerdy Thursdays in New York City?

Nerdy Thursdays will be back in action April 5th at the Black Gotham Experience Studio in the Seaport District.  Gallery, museum, artist studio, event space – we have a bit of it all.  Our exhibit and experience space engages people of all backgrounds and connects them with the stories and design process of the Black Gotham Experience.  The BGX Studio is made possible by an artist residency with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and special support from The Howard Hughes Corporation.
