2017-04 Tidal 1st place team hi5

Registration is open for ArtsWave Arts x Tech weekend, October 19-21. We need creative individuals with technology, marketing, communications, logistics, human resources, entrepreneurship or arts management experience — or anyone with enthusiasm for helping arts organizations work smarter and reach more people!

A generous sponsorship from Fifth Third Bank means the cost of ArtsWave Arts x Tech is offset, and there are huge perks for participating. We'll keep you inspired, fed, hydrated and even entertained. At Friday night's kick-off event, which starts with drinks and h'ors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., entrepreneur and innovator Doug Hall of Eureka Ranch will do a Fireside Chat with LISNR co-founder Chris Ostoich. Learn how Doug is disrupting the bourbon industry!

After Doug and Chris, arts and business leaders will share a series of real-life business challenges that require fresh thinking and high-tech or (low-tech!) solutions. You’ll pick your favorite project and join a team that will work on Saturday and Sunday to create a responsive product, service, platform or plan. By Sunday night, you’ll be pitching your solution back to a panel of top business and arts leaders who will choose the most viable solution as the night’s big winner.

The lucky members of that team will each receive a very sweet grand prize…

…a shiny new iPhone X!

Just think, by volunteering your skills at ArtsWave Arts x Tech, you could walk away with valuable new technology yourself!

And, you'll be walking away with new connections, new friends, new knowledge about the region’s arts organizations, and a new appreciation for the business of the arts. You might even walk away with a new business idea or two for yourself. Most importantly, you’ll become part of the growing network of ArtsWave Arts x Tech alums who are shaking up the start-up scene in Cincy by bringing passionate arts and technology professionals together.

Are you ready to innovate for the arts? We'll see you there!
