The Launch Prize debuts at Huntington Theater Company

Presented by Bridge Repertory Theater of Boston
Mar. 3 - Mar. 20, 2016

In this new work by local playwright MJ Halberstadt (Emerson alumn), a career-launching prize is at stake, the winner’s name sealed in an envelope. As a quartet of visual arts students prepares its graduate thesis exhibition, the gloves come off when one of them suggests that racial and gender identity will influence the prize committee’s selection more than the merits of each artist’s work. Tiffany Nichole Greene returns to Bridge Rep to direct a young, diverse cast in this fun and fast-paced production. 

Student tickets: $20.50
Regular admission: $40

On the Blog: Student-Created Start-Up "bistara" Helps College Students Become Freelancers

It’s no secret that America's freelance workforce is growing. In 2014, a landmark survey by independent research firm Edelman Berland found that 53 million workers in the U.S. - or 34% of the workforce - are employed doing freelance work. According to Forbes, the percentage is predicted to be 50% by 2020.

Maya Rafie, a senior at Emerson College, and Zac DelVecchio, a fifth-semester Berklee student, have smartly tapped into the pulse of this economic trend with their start-up, Bistara. Launched on October 14th, bistara is the world’s first marketplace to connect college students with freelance work.
