CONNECTS informs and introduces urban creatives and millennials to professional individuals and opportunities in the arts, entertainment, media, finance, and law. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, the heart of CONNECTS is to inspire creatives and highlight the importance of information - sharing and relationships within business. Through our annual 3-day industry-focused festival and conference as well as quarterly programming and digital content, we aim to connect multilevel creatives and professionals for the purposes of professional development. We are responsible for connections made in a variety of industries and companies including VH1 & Sony Music's Red Music Distribution.

CONNECTS 2017 brought out NYC creatives in Music, Media, and The Arts during our annual festival and conference. We kicked off on October 26 with our keynote conversation featuring Sway Calloway. Our music showcased independent artists Toni Nicole, Oswin Benjamin, Priscilya Marie, & Zeyi. The 3-day event ran from October 26 through October 28 and included a Film Talk with Shana Solomon of Shades of Blue & Creator of The Closet Bitch & Jermel Howard of 50's Power, Tales, All Eyez On Me, and Marvel's Luke Cage. Our all star panel included LaVarro Jones, Lynn Hobson, Lande Yoosuf, Okema T. Moore, & Priscilya Marie.
