The Creative Collective NYC’s CultureCon is back for 2022, and ahead of going on a three-city tour this year, the group has dropped a documentary short– Culture Con: The Next Chapter.

Founded by Imani Ellis, CultureCon is a conference that “celebrates culture, community and creatives of color. CultureCon is the ultimate creative homecoming, highlighting conversations that range from building a business to building a life.”

Past speakers include Will Smith, Spike Lee, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Legend, Regina King, Lena Waithe, Coleman Domingo, Sanaa Lathan, Keke Palmer and more.

This year’s CultureCon is presented by HBO Max, and following the success of CultureCon At Home, CultureCon 2022 will be a hybrid event with both in-person activations and free digital offerings.

Their three-city tour includes stops in New York City, Atlanta and Los Angeles.

The doc below takes viewers behind the scenes of CultureCon and its diverse team.

The Creative Collective NYC also recently announced its third annual Creative Class in Variety, featuring Darian Harvin, Etienne Maurice, Nick Creegan and more.
