On November 20th, Color Factory New York will partner with UNICEF to recognize World Children’s Day, a global day of action for children, by children.

All profits from ticket sales will be donated to UNICEF USA, and every guest will receive custom gift bags that feature exclusive Color Factory x UNICEF World Children’s Day pins, among other goodies.

World Children’s Day – celebrated on 20th November and this year coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child – aims to raise awareness and funds for the millions of children that are denied their right to adequate health care, nutrition, education and protection. Around the world, children will ‘take over’ high-visibility roles in media, politics, business, sport, and entertainment usually held by adults to shine a spotlight on issues that matter to them. Children will also help turn the world blue – at school, on the streets, on social media, in boardrooms and on sports fields in support of child rights.

Color Factory believes in the power of childlike joy. Each exhibit encourages visitors to connect with one another and return to that state of natural wonder. Unfortunately, not every child has the opportunity to forge these connections or experience play. Through their partnership with local and national organisations, Color Factory hopes to be a force for good to ensure equitable treatment and opportunity.

Encompassing over 20,000 total square feet, each room in Color Factory is an experiential, interactive installation that invites people to engage their natural curiosity and gives them permission to be joyful, playful, and uninhibited. Every hue is hand-selected based on the everyday of New York and paired with a sensory activity to unleash the full impact of color.

At the entry, visitors are invited to register for a card with a special barcode which can be scanned at custom photo booth stations set up throughout the exhibition. Images will automatically be emailed to users.

Tickets to Color Factory New York are $38 for adults, $28 for children. All ticket profits will be donated to UNICEF USA. For any questions about the event, please reach out to or


UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in more than 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

Color Factory is an interactive exhibit that celebrates the discovery, serendipity, and generosity of color. Our experiential installations are inspired by each city we visit and engage every sense in unexpected ways.

Each of our experiences is thoughtfully designed to awaken natural curiosity and uninhibited play. Every hue is hand-selected and paired with a sensory experience to unleash the full impact of color. We carefully curate palettes based on the locale and seek to creatively connect our visitors to it.

At the core of our mission and work are the artists of Color Factory. These creatives, designers, and makers tell their unique stories through multidimensional performance of color and place. We also collaborate closely with local nonprofits, brands, and governments, ensuring we’re representing our cities in ways that respect and resonate with the community.

Color Factory debuted in San Francisco in 2017 and now has unique locations in New York and Houston. To learn more, visit
