With 79 percent of Gen Zers – more than any other generation – reporting feelings of loneliness, social isolation has become a growing epidemic among young people. Studies suggest that these numbers have continued to climb following the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the world opens back up, the need for social interaction and connection has never been more important. In an effort to tackle this demand, Eventbrite, the global event management and ticketing platform, has announced a multi-year initiative called The Social Connection Project that’s transforming the way we interact at live events.
They’ve tapped actress and Genius Entertainment CEO Marsai Martin to curate a collection of free Eventbrite events that showcase the power of live experiences to drive meaningful connections.
