Saturday, October 8th- New York City is the last stop on the three-city CultureCon tour.
Are you Attending CultureCon???? If not you need to be in attendance FASHIONABLE and ready to NETWORK work your but off.
This opportunity will allow you to meet like-minded creatives and show up to SHOWCASE your VALUE within the community. If you’re not sure what CultureCon is, let me break it down for you.
CultureCon is the go-to destination for diverse creatives, entrepreneurs, and young professionals. The conference will feature inspiring conversations, skill-building workshops, interactive activations, and the opportunity to shop at the Small Business Market. Leading up to CultureCon, guests will be invited to attend CultureCon Week — an offering of exclusive events, workshops, parties, and experiences leading up to the big weekend.
CultureCon™ is a conference that celebrates culture, community, and creatives of color. CultureCon is the ultimate creative homecoming, highlighting conversations that range from building a business to building a life. Forbes says “CultureCon is a conference every creative should attend.” We couldn’t agree more. Past CultureCon™ speakers include Will Smith, Spike Lee, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Legend, Regina King, Lena Waithe, Coleman Domingo, Sanaa Lathan, Keke Palmer, and more. CultureCon is the first-of-its-kind ideas conference that caters to all aspects of creative and young professional life.
It’s created by The Creative Collective NYC (TheCCnyc) a community dedicated to curating brave spaces for creatives of color. Built from Imani Ellis’ one-bedroom apartment, the collective has now parlayed into the fastest-growing collective for creatives of color. TheCCnyc’s marquee event is CultureCon, a conference celebrating the impact diverse voices have on culture.
In addition to community events, The Creative Collective NYC provides countless resources and workshops. In the height of the pandemic, The Creative Collective NYC launched CultureCon At Home, a virtual campus that reached creatives in over 131 countries around the world, and Creative Curriculum, a series of digital masterclasses touching on everything from entrepreneurship to navigating the corporate world.
This monumental event is presented by HBO Max™ which is a streaming platform that offers best-in-class quality entertainment, delivering the greatest array of series, movies, and specials for audiences of all ages from the iconic brands of HBO, Warner Bros., and DC, as well as Max Originals, blockbuster films, and beloved kids and family content.
The platform launched in the United States in May 2020 and introduced a lower-priced, advertising-supported tier in June 2021. Currently available in 61 countries, HBO Max began its global rollout launching in markets across Latin America and the Caribbean last summer, followed by European launches in the Nordics, Iberia, the Netherlands, and Central and Eastern Europe.
