Being borderless: building a movement for a new global pop culture for social change.

Anushay Said July 13, 2022

This session will invite audiences to engage in a conversation about discovering and connecting with the generation of content creators that is changing the world through creative expressions and redefining pop culture for the global era. Who are they? What are they saying? Where are they? Why should we pay attention to them? What impact are they having? We will offer insights from our global network of content and creators and share our approach to imagine building a transformative global community that is not a one-off but sustains itself to elevate these voices to become the mainstream culture.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

We know there is a demand and need for culture that is making a better world, a culture that seeks to bring voices of people doing amazing things everyday locally to change the world and connects these voices globally. We need to see the good in the world to be able to change it. We want to hear from audiences that want to be part of creating this cultural movement, that is about constant discovering of creative talent across industries and sectors, addressing a multitude of issues, not one, and connecting them together is one place.
