Digi-Bridge is excited to announce their fourth annual #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) event on Thursday, November 29th from 6-8 p.m. with the theme of "Connect to Disconnect" in an effort to raise awareness about the digital divide. The event will take place at Ascent Uptown (225 S Poplar Street).
It’s estimated that one third of Charlotte-Mecklenburg scholars do not have access to an internet-connected device at home. This reality requires all of us to consider how we might engage to support their future, because as a community, their future is ours.
We'll enjoy beverages and light bites in a hip setting straight out of the 1980's - the era that brought the Internet to life. Digi-Bridge encourages guests to dress for the decade, take part in some good ol' fashioned conversation and networking, and experience what it's like to be without access by tendering phones at the door.
Tickets are limited so register now!
Please contact Caitlin Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions and follow us on social media for updates at @digibridgeus.
See you at #TBT!
