Newmindspace is a New York- and Toronto-based urban arts collective founded in 2005 by Lori Kufner and Kevin Bracken. The pair organizes free, monthly events in cities throughout North America. Using a mailing list and their website newmindspace.com to communicate with their community, Newmindspace hosts all-ages events that generally attract teenagers, twentysomethings and people in their early 30's. Their events have inspired other groups to undertake similar projects in cities around the world.[citation needed]

Ideology and inspiration[edit]

Newmindspace is loosely connected to the Toronto Public Space Committee, and considers reclaiming public space the most important goal of their activities. They also claim they are committed to "inventing new ways of having fun", pointing out that most cities lack free, quality entertainment for young people. Other events, such as their urban easter egg hunts or Night Lights, are intended to be public art installations modeled after the works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
