In March 2023, AES NYC’s premier venue, Center415, set the stage for an inspiring event – the Bring Change 2 Mind student summit.

Bring Change 2 Mind is a non-profit organization passionately dedicated to dismantling the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. Bring Change 2 Mind’s cause has always deeply resonated with AES NYC. Our CEO, Dan Kobin, holds this organization close to his heart and has consistently demonstrated his support for their mission.

Recognizing the critical role that venues and resources play in facilitating impactful events, Dan generously offered the use of Center415, a high-profile venue central in New York City, for the Bring Change 2 Mind student summit. This marked the third year that AES NYC has provided a venue for Bring Change 2 Mind. According to Dan, “being a part of Bring Change 2 Mind’s mission is personal to me. It’s about standing together to make a difference, and I’m proud that AES NYC can contribute in meaningful ways.”

AES NYC’s commitment extends beyond providing a venue. Understanding the multifaceted needs of an event, Dan also made a significant financial donation to support the summit. This contribution was directed towards funding essential components such as audio-visual setups, catering, graphics, and various event materials, ensuring a seamless and enriching experience for all attendees.

Over the years, Dan and AES NYC have consistently stood by Bring Change 2 Mind, supporting their initiatives and aligning our efforts to amplify their message. Being a host for the student summit was a continuation of this ongoing partnership, and we are excited to continue this journey of collaboration.

Following the success of the student summit in March, AES NYC is thrilled to say that we will once again play host to Bring Change 2 Mind, this time in November, at our newest venue, Annex 417. We are excited to see how the continued work of Bring Change 2 Mind further advances mental health awareness and reduces the stigma surrounding mental illness. Stay tuned for updates on the upcoming event at Annex 417, and let us unite to bring about change for a better tomorrow.
