TEDxBroadway Is Teaming Up With the Next Generation of Innovators
When the fourth annual TEDxBroadway returns Monday, February 23rd, 2015 to New World Stages in New York City, it will include some very special attendees in “The Loft.” We’re inviting the next generation to participate in shaping the future of Broadway with the TEDxBroadway Young Professional and Student Programs.
“Some of today’s most influential people in the Broadway ecosystem come to TEDxBroadway, but we want to make sure that some of tomorrow’s most influential are there too,” says Damian Bazadona, founder of Situation Interactive and TEDxBroadway Co-organizer.
The TEDxBroadway Loft is a space for the 54 members of the Young Professional and Student Programs to exchange ideas and information with their peers. They can voice their opinions and build relationships for later initiatives.
“It might get a little raucous up there, but in a good way,” says Jim McCarthy, CEO, Goldstar and Co-organizer, TEDxBroadway. “Don’t worry though. Just because you’re not in the Young Professional Program or a Student, that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to go up there.”
If you’re interested in joining the fun, 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.
