99U LOCAL: MANILA- Creatives Making Ideas Happen

MANILA, Philippines - For the first time ever, New York-based 99U will be launching 99U Local: Manila on September 16, 2015, 6-10PM at the Ayala Museum. The Manila leg is part of a 99U Local event series happening in 28 hand-picked creative cities around the world.  

As the legendary inventor Thomas Edison famously said, "Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration," and thus, 99U wants to provide that missing curriculum to help make ideas happen. And more than that, we'd like to connect Manila's bright, passionate creatives to a community that also cares about the impact of their work on others - be it with their team, society, or the planet on a larger scale.

The program will feature three short talks to inspire, move and make ideas happen, from 3 Manileños in various creative fields, including: 

The night will also include live performances by Reese Lansangan and crwn

99U Local: Manila may be a one night event only, but we're happy to have the chance to use this as a jump off point for creatives to do impactful work with their skills and talents, and collaborate with other creatives in Manila. —Rappler.com 

The event is FREE but open to only 200 action-driven creatives. Register for an invite through the 99U Local: Manila Meetup group: www.manila.99ulocal.com and complete the RSVP process. Accepted attendees will be announced in batches on August 28 and September 4. A confirmation email will be required for entrance to the event.

This event is co-presented by 99UMuni, and the Ayala Museum, and also made possible by Philippine Airlines, Rappler, Wheninmanila.com, Bayani BrewV KitchenShutter Panda, and Amplify.ph. For partner inquiries, e-mail us at 99umanila@gmail.com.
