June 25, 2018 at 8pm EST is the date for our next #blkcreatives chat. Here’s everything you need to know.
TOPIC – Embracing New Mindsets
Seasons change, mad things re-arrange as the great Lauryn Hill once shared. Intentional change is a part of growth. If you've been craving newness and want to discuss how you've embraced healthy change, this one is for you.
WHAT & WHO: #blkcreatives is a collective that is working to economically support and advocate for Black genius in creative industries. We live at the intersection of culture, creativity and community. Every aspect of Black culture is ingrained into our society and yet Black creatives are often overlooked, undervalued, and underemployed. We exist to bridge the gap between culture and careers.
Born in April 2015, our monthly Twitter chat creates discussions that revolve around a specific topic that relates to our personal development and growth as people and professionals.
Meet our guests for this chat:
