As an outward-facing research center of Pratt Institute, the Consortium for Research & Robotics (CRR) engages in innovative design research by using frontier technologies.
Each year, a different theme is developed to challenge artists to surface hidden stories, patterns, and connections in data, while examining the shortcomings of this data and question its claims to objectivity.
The Center K-12 launched an exciting new partnership with Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) to offer after-school visual arts programming at two NYCHA facilities. BCS's internal research showed that there was strong interest in visual arts programming in the communities they serve. Our partnership was developed in response to aspirations expressed by the community.
The Parallel Conservatory aims to digitize and expand the Pratt Foundation Lab collection in order to create a social practice platform for reflexive institutional critique.
