The Culture Crush Insights Live

Within the Culture Crush belief system is the notion of getting off of your phone and getting into the world. So we put that plan into action during the month of December and participated in two events where founder Debra Scherer spoke about the Culture Crush, it’s place in the world, and thoughts on the relationship between storytellers and the media itself.

The first presentation was called Communion, held by Rupture Studio at Interface NYC, Debra shared her experiences in the fashion industry, the Culture Crush and the organic way in which it has grown over the past year. Then, we traveled down to the Lower East Side to Con Artist Collective along with photographer André Wagner, who spoke about his own experiences working in The Culture Crush way. Debra, André and Con Artist founder Brian Shevlin discussed photography, filmmaking, podcasting, and publishing, all within the context of comparing the experiences of being a creative in New York versus Los Angeles. We premiered the film short, There Is Freedom In Manhattan, part of the continuing printed page comes to life series.
