This month, Hamilton HIVE partnered with Pathways to Education Hamilton to sell tickets for the 10db Series at McMaster University’s LIVELab, presented by Cobalt Connects. As a part of the ticket platform set up for this event, HIVE received $5 for each ticket sold – of which all proceeds went towards providing complimentary tickets to this years’ HIVEX Conference for students at Pathways to Education.
“As an educator in Hamilton, I have experience working with this city’s low-income schools,” says Oana Sirb, Hamilton HIVE PR Volunteer. “It is very humbling that Hamilton HIVE is partnering with Pathways to offer these students a networking and career advancing opportunity they might not be able to attend otherwise.”
The partnership with Pathways to Education is a perfect pair. Like HIVE, Pathways is committed to making a difference for young professionals in this city. Their mission is to improve the lives of Hamilton’s students by ensuring that every youth in Canada has the opportunity to graduate from high school.
Pathways strives to break the cycle of poverty through education – offering after-school tutoring, mentoring, and financial assistance to address the barriers that affect education. Most importantly, they provide the resources and network of support for students to graduate from high school and build the foundation for a successful future.
About The 10db Series event:
The concert hosted at McMaster’s LIVELab – a one-of-a-kind music research facility that hosts ground-breaking research and music – brought many young professionals across the city together to enjoy a night of local talent.
The LIVELab (Large Interactive Virtual Environment) is a unique 106-seat Research Performance Hall designed to investigate the experience of music, dance, multimedia presentations, and human interaction. This lab is all about the neuroscientific understanding of how performers interact, what moves audiences during a performance, and the cognitive, social and emotional impact of these experiences. They incorporate technology and real-time audience feedback into creative performances, the development and evaluation of new technologies for health and artistic expression, they neuroscientifically evaluate the human responses and what makes for successful human interactions.
