ABOUT CULTURE CREATORS
Culture Creators was founded in 2015 as an organization designed to celebrate black culture across passion points – music, television/film, visual arts, fashion, sports, tech, and entrepreneurship, specifically those who helped to create it and those who are now the ‘creators.’ The company operates as a national multimedia & experiential organization with a wide range of platforms but primarily focusing on education and digital content. By focusing on connecting the ‘old guard’ and the ‘new guard’ and serving as an outlet to educate, inspire and empower the younger generation of ‘creators,’ the company will build up a strong following of young adults known as millennials and generation Y.
In addition to thought leadership events, networking sessions and mentoring, and the annual “Innovators & Leaders Awards brunch, Culture Creators seeks to become the think-tank, talent incubator and pipeline for creatives, companies, and intellectuals who touch black culture in one form or another.
