About Us

Last year we handed out 20,000 nametags to New Yorkers. On June 7, 2014, we want to give out even more.

Nametag Day is a worldwide movement. In New York, we're going to set up distribution sites around the city and hand out nametags to encourage people to be more open for a day.

All too often, we can forget to notice the people around us. Nametag Day aims to break this barrier and strengthen the human element of the New York experience, adding a bit of spontaneity and silliness to people's days.

There's no catch. We're not political. We are not selling anything. We're radically participatory, which means that anyone and everyone can volunteer with us. Sign up on the site to find out how you can be a part of it.

We were featured in The New York Times, TIME Magazine, Gothamist, 1010-WINS, and AM New York among others.

If you want to organize something for Nametag Day: a performance, art project, event, or any other creative endeavor, get in touch!
