TechniCulture, hosted by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, helps build deeper relationships between the cultural and tech communities, encourages and inspires cultural organizations to think more innovatively and entrepreneurially and celebrates Philly's tech resources.
Our second annual event will feature a keynote address by Sree Sreenivasan, the first Chief Digital Officer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He often describes his work as “operating a startup in a 150-year old organization," and leads a world-class team of 70 working on topics he loves: digital, social, mobile, video, data, email apps and more.
Following the keynote TechniCulture Innovation Residency Awards recipients Christ Church Preservation Trust, Philadelphia Young Playwrights and Tiny Dynamite will present projects from their 4-month micro-residencies. A panel of expert judges will vote on a winner!
The winning organization will receive $20,000 from The Barra Foundation and $5,000 in pro-bono legal services from Morgan Lewis to continue their work in this area! The 2 runners-up will each receive $10,000 from Barra and TechniCulture attendees will vote on an audience favorite to receive an additional cash prize!
Attendees - $10
Students - Free (must show student ID at registration)
