Scholarship Program Update
The Engage Scholarship (Youth/Student)
Due to schedules and length of process for approvals with the school board we have changed our direction for the student scholarship for 2018. We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the lead of the technical program, Len Simon and offering him a portion of his expenses to attend LDI in October.
In its thirtieth year, Live Design International (LDI) has been connecting design, tech and production to the live audience experience. As the leading conference and tradeshow for live design professionals from all around the globe, LDI hosts over 14,000 members of the production community, working in a wide range of international live and broadcast venues – festivals, corporate events, theatre, concerts, clubs, theme parks, architainment, and houses of worship.
We feel that this provides the teacher and mentor of the students in the program an impactful transfer of knowledge opportunity. He is very passionate about the program, the students and after spending months digging into our industry with us, he is very excited about all the possibilities we will build together.
He will be joining us at the golf tournament to talk briefly about the program and we will update you on our plans for 2018-2019 and the student scholarship and engagement program! Stay tuned!
The Elevate and Innovate Scholarship
We have also determined that this year we will be sending someone from Calgary to LDI in October! Our mandate was to encourage growth and innovation in the technical portion of our local industry and we have selected this as the right education and inspiration platform to support for 2018.
If you would like to nominate someone or submit your own name for this please fill out the required information before August 1st, 2018. We will short list and interview the second week of August and announce the scholarship recipient at the golf tournament September 12th.
