Culture Connections Series: Charting the Intersection of Culture & Equality

Hosted at Hotel Haya - Las Noveades

We are exited to welcome back our collaboration with MergeCulture Gallery.

We’re even more excited to announce Culture Connections: a quarterly celebration and moderated lecture series about the web of contributions that exist in the Tampa Bay Arts Community. These conversations will include the trailblazers in our community who help to make our city a beautiful place.

This event will celebrate all things creative in Tampa and will include conversations that revolve around the social identity of our geographic area and how the art community as a whole (collectors, curators, institutions, researchers, architects, etc.) help shape the place we call home.

This networking and fundraising event will host a town hall-style lecture series, uniting art collectors, curators, professionals, and self-taught artists in our community. Together, we’ll explore the economic influence of the arts, delving into Ybor City’s distinctive art history and culture, the significance of inclusivity and diversity within the arts, and the importance of diverse voices in public art.

In celebration of Tampa Pride month, proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Equality Florida, specifically supporting their Equality Means Business initiatives. We’ll examine the effects of public art on economic impact for small businesses, a cornerstone of the Tampa Walls Mural Festival.

Time: 6:30-9:00pm

Location: Las Novedades inside Hotel Haya
