Culture Con, a premiere destination for creators of color, entrepreneurs and young professionals, returns to New York City on Saturday, October 8, for a day full of activations, conversations, workshops and more. 

Widely known as “The Ultimate Creative Homecoming,” the highly anticipated conference made stops in Los Angeles and Atlanta earlier this year. Attendees were able to participate in Culture Con Week in NYC from October 2-7 for an advance glimpse of all to come during the main event. 

On Saturday, presenting partner HBO will host VIP and talent lounges; Strong Black Lead, Netflix’s Black sub-brand, will lead a conversation on cultural storytelling; and TikTok will discuss Black creators and the real-world impact of Black TikTok on culture. 

Taraji P. HensonLena WaitheMeagan GoodTracee Ellis RossTerrance JAngie Martinez and Winston Duke are among the more than 75 guest speakers and celebrities who will participate in conference panels and discussions.

An already much-talked-about part of the conference, actors Nia Long and Larenz Tate will reunite to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the beloved classic film Love Jones.

Culture Con is a division of The Creative Collective NYC, a vision born out of founder Imani Ellis‘ desire to build community and assemble a collaborative space for Black and brown creatives to engage with one another.
