Invest in the Future of ITP — Please support the 40th Anniversary Red Burns Scholarship Fundraising Drive

For 40 years, the alumni of ITP have done more to shape the introduction of interactive media into our society than perhaps any other single group in the world. And during that time those interactive technologies have completely reshaped the way our society creates culture and does business. For better and for worse, we are at the center of things.

At ITP we still use Red’s approach. We put people with different backgrounds, perspectives, methods, and goals next to each other where they can collaborate to develop ideas that they did not already have. To be able to continue assembling this creative mix of people dedicated to creative, thoughtful and helpful uses of emerging technologies, we need scholarships.

The impact of interactive technologies in our society is becoming more prevalent and profound, and ITP’s influence is growing as new programs and facilities are coming on line. It would be hard to find a bigger impact for your money than funding a scholarship at ITP. You can help send the world’s media landscape into a healthier, more just, more beautiful, more meaningful, and more fun direction by making is possible for a worthy student to come to ITP.

The Party! (Main Event is Oct. 12)

Join us for the ITP40 Birthday and Housewarming Party! Please see ticket options below for a cocktail party at ITP’s new home, 370 Jay Street, 4th Floor in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 12, 2019, 5:30pm – 8pm. Ticket sales entirely support ITP scholarships, and are partially tax-deductible. 

This celebration is taking place over Columbus Day weekend – October 10-14. There will be a lot of opportunities for alumni to organize their own events over the long weekend. We hear a TNO (Thursday Night Out) is already in the works. Also a student-run Fly-By. We have reserved the former space at 721 Broadway on Friday October 11 at 6pm for the Pecha Kucha and deconsecration event with pizza and boxed wine. Maybe a maker day on Sunday at our new space is another possibility

We hope alumni will come up with a lot of other plans to make the weekend special. Stay connected with each other on our new email listserve.
