Founded in 2008, Summit creates unique gatherings designed to catalyze entrepreneurship, creative achievement, and global change to create a more joyful world. Through a series of invitation-only events, Summit fosters a global community of leaders ranging from artists to entrepreneurs, academics, scientists, non-profit leaders and beyond. In addition to being on the cutting edge, Summit requires these individuals to be well meaning, kind people that work together towards a simple goal: make the world a better place.
Summit's events combine art, talks, culinary experiences, music, and wellness activations with countless surprises, immersive adventures, and incredible people.
"We think the Broadway Theatre District is a treasure hiding in plain site," said Summit's co-founder, Ryan Begelman. "It has incredible infrastructure for events having been built as an entertainment epicenter a century ago. Its theaters, parking lots, alleyways, restaurants, and hotels provide the infrastructure and ideal backdrop for an immersive event like Summit. And we are excited to align ourselves with the revitalization of downtown, LA and to highlight the transformation happening there."
Participating L.A.-based chefs include Nyesha Arrington, Ray Garcia (Broken Spanish), Sarah Hymanson & Sara Kramer (Kismet), and Sammy Monsour (Preux & Proper).
2. Performances: 40+ musicians, poets, and dancers perform in speakeasies, grand theaters, and even on the street, including classical, stand up comedy, hip-hop, live acts, DJs, spoken word and movement art.
Centered around Downtown L.A.’s historic Broadway Theatre District, the Summit campus is taking over top hotels, restaurants, theaters, building an open air lounge and marketplace, erecting a wellness studio, converting rooftops into salons, and more.
