Young Professionals Preview Night is a special, high-profile preview cocktail reception and networking event for young professional leaders in the Philadelphia area.

There are over a dozen young professional groups participating. Get to know today’s featured organization, Arts Tech Philly, as founder Uri Pierre-Noel answers a few of our questions.

What is ArtsTechPhilly?

ArtsTechPhilly is an event focused platform for creative professionals, entrepreneurs and professionals that work at the intersection of the arts and technology. We create an engaging forum for the discussion of this intersection, present keynote speaker presentations, offer members a chance to present their own projects and continue to invent new ways to engage professionals. Working with local companies we are driven to creating a consistent forum where professionals can network and learn about the advances in this intersection.

ArtsTechPhilly members or ArtsTechies can join for free at meetup.com/artstechphilly to receive updates on events, newsletters, and special promotions from our partners. Coming soon we will host a happy hour every 2nd Wednesday where professionals get a chance to kick back and relax with like-minded individuals!

This is ArtsTechPhilly’s first time taking part in the benefit. We’ve only launched in Philadelphia in the last 8 months!

Why should young professionals be interested in the Benefit preview?

Young professionals should come out to see what great groups are here in Philadelphia and get involved! Its a chance to see the great programming these groups offer, and a chance to see the great collection of work for auction.

Taking an interest in art collecting allows you to explore art history first hand , raise the aesthetic quality of your environment and help in sustaining your local art community. Philadelphia is home to both historic and contemporary cultural niches that all help to enrich the City of Brotherly Love.
