Ground Zero to Ground Zero: Hiroshima survivor tree seeds to be planted on stage to initiate survivor-tree sapling exchange between New York City and Hiroshima; #seedthechange

NEW YORK, NY- April 17, 2018 -The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival's Ninth Annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards (TDIA), sponsored by AT&T and Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, will unveil the diverse field of disruptors, revolutionaries, and game-changers whose breakthroughs are creating radical solutions to some of the world's most vexing problems. This year's awards will be hosted by Tamron Hall, and honorees will include DJ Kool Herc, Beatrice Fihn, eleven-year-old activist/sensation Naomi Wadler, Sheila Nevins, Dr. Waleed Hassanein, Tarana Burke, Joe Lubin, Etty Ausch and more. TDIA takes places on April 24 at the Tribeca Festival Hub at Spring Studios. The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, runs April 18 - 29, 2018.

Helmed by Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Craig Hatkoff, the awards celebrate those who have challenged the status quo and broken the mold to create world-changing impact. TDIA showcases disruptive innovation in the fields of healthcare, education, international development, politics and advocacy, media, and the arts and entertainment. The awards honor those who have inspired disruptive change and focuses on advances occurring at the intersection of technology and culture where frequent clashes and resistance to change impede social progress.

Last October we held our first awards in Hiroshima, the City of Hope where we presented to the City of Hiroshima a 9-11 survivor tree sapling. In turn, the city of Hiroshima has entrusted us with seeds harvested from amongst its 150 survivor trees-the metaphor for resilience of the human spirit-- that still stand and bloom 72 years after the atom bomb was dropped on their city. These seeds will be planted onstage by our honorees including a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, an atomic bomb survivor, an eleven-year-old activist, the father of hip hop, the inventor of the hashtag and many others, said Craig Hatkoff.

Hatkoff continued, Over the past decade the awards have become a living laboratory on the frontiers of disruption and innovation. As a society we desperately need to understand and confront the great peril ahead emanating from the ever-widening techno-cultural divide. We are witnessing the unnerving limitations of our capacity to responsibly manage and deploy the infinite fruits of the human imagination in the era of algorithm. The holy grail is man plus machine rather than man versus machine.

The awards are a collaboration with Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen author of the Silicon Valley manifesto-The Innovators Dilemma-- and father of disruptive innovation theory-the world's most influential theory of innovation and radical change. For more than a decade, the Disruptor Foundation has worked with Professor Christensen in exploring the new dimensions of his theory applied to both traditional technological innovation as well as its applications to non-traditional domains such as the arts, education, philanthropy, resilience, conservation, social entrepreneurship, religion, politics, polarization and conflict resolution.

Known for celebrating an eclectic roster of visionaries and rebels who are upending their industries, the honorees are altering the human experience through their novel approaches to social justice and activism, and affecting the future of intelligence, both human and artificial. This year will be no exception with a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, a documentary producer, the inventor of the hashtag and several others. Michiko Kakutani will be receiving the Disruptor Award Book of the Year presented by the Harvard Business Review for The Death of the Truth.

Nobel Laureate Beatrice Fihn will receive the first-ever Hersey Prize presented by the family of John Heresy, author of Hiroshima. Additionally, the Adam Smith Prize, which is also presented by the Harvard Business Review, will go to Howard W. Buffett.
