They say if you don’t see what you want in the world, go out and make it. That’s exactly what Imani Ellis did when she founded The Creative Collective in her apartment.

The Creative Collective serves as a space for diverse creatives to come together to network and offer educational resources. From that, CultureCon was born. The conference serves as a major destination for diverse young professionals to meet and learn, broadening the mission of The Creative Collective.
