Tisch Gala 2019

To all of our students, parents, supporters, performers, Dean's Council members, Parents' Council members, and friends who supported the 2019 Tisch Gala - THANK YOU!

Thank you for your support of the 2019 Tisch Gala! With your generosity, we raised nearly $1 million in support of our most pressing student needs.

The evening honored Graduate Acting alumna Susan Kelechi Watson and ITP alumna, Tisch Dean's Council member, and NYU Trustee Sharon Chang. For the first time, the event took place in Brooklyn, as part of the school's Institute of Emerging Media prepares to move into their permanent home at NYU's new state of the art Media, Technology, and Arts building at 370 Jay Street in Brooklyn. Guests crossed the river and joined us in the spectacular water-front DUMBO neighborhood for the year's most festive and inspiring celebration! 

See below for more highlights from the evening.
