TEDxBroadway Announces Young Professional and Student Programs (Application Deadline Jan. 31)
When the sixth annual TEDxBroadway returns Tuesday, March 21, 2017 to New World Stages in New York City, the always sold-out event will be brimming with new ideas, new themes and new members of the Young Professional and Student Programs.
“We want to make sure that as we discuss the future of Broadway, the next generation is in the room to lend their voices and help shape the future of the Broadway eco-system,” says Jim McCarthy, CEO, Goldstar and Co-organizer, TEDxBroadway.
Each year, 58 people are invited from a large pool of applicants for the Young Professionals and Student Programs. The goal is to create an environment in which the young professionals and students can network, voice their opinions, insights, and build relationships for later initiatives. The TEDxBroadway Loft and Young Professional Program are being underwritten by The Nederlander Organization and The Shubert Organization.
“The energy that these young professionals contribute I think is just refreshing and we’re thrilled to host them every year at TEDxBroadway,” adds Damian Bazadona, founder of Situation Interactive and TEDxBroadway Co-organizer.
Applications are now being accepted for the program. Each selected participant gets one free ticket to TEDxBroadway. They will also be invited into a private social group with opportunities to engage with other young professionals, as well as opportunities to interact with professionals and leaders in the Broadway community before, during and after the conference.
