Great news for Summit fans! While tickets for the live conference at NYU have been sold out for over a month now, we are very pleased to be able to offer our local New York audiences a chance to engage from only a few blocks away. Cooper Union has generously agreed to host a live Summit screening in its Great Hall, located in The Foundation Building at 7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues in downtown Manhattan.

For those currently on the Summit ticketing wait-list, this is a great opportunity to register for a seat at Cooper Union, where you will be able to enjoy all the presentations via Livestream on the big screen while surrounded by members of the local Summit community.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Summit screening at Cooper!

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
