In the last several years, downtown Brooklyn has experienced a cultural and commercial renaissance. Much of that is thanks to the landmark rezoning of the district that took place 10 years ago. To commemorate this milestone and celebrate all that is happening in the neighborhood, on Tuesday, May 6th, Downtown Brooklyn Partnership will present “The 5×10 Talks,”at BRIC Arts Media House. What better way to showcase the innovation taking place in Downtown Brooklyn than to hear from a few of the innovators themselves – in their own words. Downtown Brooklyn Partnership has invited 5 of these innovators to answer the question, “What’s Next?” Speakers include:
Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot
Brett Yormark, CEO of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center
Deborah Schwartz, President of the Brooklyn Historical Society
Katherine Isbister, Director of the NYU Game Innovation Lab
Ralph McDaniels, Founder of Video Music Box.
The program will also showcase the cultural community with performances from Soul Science featuring Chen Lo and Asante’ Amin, presented by 651 Arts; “I Hear America Singing,” presented by American Opera Projects; and present an award honoring outgoing Downtown Brooklyn Partnership board chairman, Alan Fishman, for his service to the community. Tickets to this illustrious event at $50, but, until April 15, there is an early bird special, 50% off. Get your tickets here:
