Dear Creatives, Countdown to Culture Con NYC 2023 Begins

As Culture Con 2023 continues to make waves in the world of creativity and innovation, we take a moment to reflect on the recent chapter that unfolded in Los Angeles. The event, which took place on June 17th, saw thousands of diverse creatives coming together for a dynamic experience filled with skill-building workshops, interactive activations, and the chance to support Black-owned businesses and vendors. The spirit of CultureCon – a celebration of culture, by the culture – was palpable, leaving a mark that will be remembered for years to come.

While the Los Angeles event is now part of Culture Con’s rich history, the excitement and anticipation continue to build as we look ahead to the upcoming NYC extravaganza, scheduled for October 7th to 8th.

Presented by HBO Max and championed by The Creative Collective NYC, CultureCon has evolved into more than just an event – it’s a movement that empowers and inspires. Reflecting on the journey so far, Jackie Gagne, SVP of multicultural marketing at Warner Bros. Discovery, shared, “The growth and impact CultureCon has had among creatives of color continues to inspire us at HBO Max. We are excited to provide invaluable resources for emerging creatives and young professionals of color.”

Following the success of last year’s nationwide tour and the groundbreaking CultureCon At Home digital platform, which reached creatives in over 131 countries, this year’s conference is taking on a hybrid form. Blending in-person activations with digital offerings, CultureCon is ensuring accessibility and engagement for all participants.

Imani Ellis, CEO and Founder of CultureCon, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “We’re thrilled to bring CultureCon back for its sixth year. HBO Max has been an incredible partner and champion of CultureCon from the outset. We are honored to consistently foster an environment of innovation, collaboration, and inclusivity.”

As we eagerly await the NYC leg of Culture Con 2023, attendees can look forward to a week filled with dynamic programming, skill-building workshops, interactive experiences, and the opportunity to explore the Small Business Market. Notably, CultureCon NYC will also debut the Creative (AF) Careers job fair, providing attendees with a unique chance to connect with recruiters and explore real-time job opportunities.

But the excitement doesn’t end there. Leading up to the main event, guests will be treated to CultureCon Week – a curated series of exclusive events, workshops, parties, and experiences designed to set the stage for the exhilarating weekend ahead.

Tickets for CultureCon NYC are now available, and the anticipation is palpable. As we bid farewell to the LA installment, we eagerly await the next chapter of Culture Con 2023 in New York City. Prepare to immerse yourself in a whirlwind of creativity, inspiration, and connection. The journey continues – see you in October!
