Born out of the Pandemic, Cities Rise was designed by modern experiential experts to safely and effectively bring people back together and ignite economic and cultural revitalization. Held annually in cities across America and debuting in NYC in the Spring of 2022, we will bring local and national attention to the communities—giving neighborhood businesses and talents an important opportunity to engage, inspire and grow.
From performances and exhibitions to cuisine exclusives and one-of-a-kind speaking engagements, Cities Rise will activate cultural experiences across New York City from the neighborhoods up. Live programming will not only motivate awareness and spur economic development, but it’ll also embrace new voices and provide platforms for cultural expression that represent diverse communities across the city—sparking valuable conversations, fostering a newfound sense of pride and creating new avenues for a prosperous future ahead.
We are giving established and up-and-coming businesses, creatives and cultural inﬂuencers the chance to tell their own story, regain their footing and rise above today’s unprecedented landscape.
