Celebs, Creators And Influencers Pull Up To CultureCon 2023
CultureCon 2023 made its way back to New York City on Oct. 7-8, and went down at Brooklyn Navy Yard despite the consistent downpour of rain. The conference for the culture, powered by The Creative Collective NYC and presented by MAX, embodies panel discussions around business and finance for creatives. From managing money with “Cash Convo” to managing time in “Offices Hours” with time-saving tips and strategies to work smarter not harder.
The annual two-day event gave homecoming vibes that presented ways to explore more avenues to create opportunities in communities of color. A topic that was centered in a fireside chat with Issa Rae.
