This year one of the most educational events held pre-Fashion Week is the Curators Conference in New York City where you can learn from culture creators from many different sides of the fashion spectrum. Featuring speakers like Susie Bubble, Gia Coppola, and Philippe Von Borries of Refinery29, the Curators Conference is an eye-opening experience that is a must-see for any creative professional.
When learning about an industry, one of the most important factors is having multiple viewpoints and that’s why a day before fashion week starts we are attending The Curators Conference in NYC. The Curators Conference is a day long event featuring international curators and creators of culture across fashion, film, design, music, and technology. The speakers were chosen because they stand at the forefront of their industries and offer a unique perspective on their culture.
Taking place on September 5th, 2012, the Curators Conference is the first in a series of conferences presented by Por-table in New York City. Presenters like blogger Susie Bubble, filmmaker Warren Fu, creator of Refinery29 Philippe von Borries, and Gia Coppolo have each been asked to speak about how curation is shaping the practices of their audience and their own platforms.
With the audience consisting predominantly of those from the fashion industry, The Curators Conference has also attracted creative professionals in technology, music, film, and design. Prices for tickets are $395 (early bird pricing has unfortunately passed) and are at a limited quantity. Available at www.curatorsconference.com, you can purchase a ticket and receive complimentary breakfast, lunch, and after lunch snacks with networking drinks post-event.
Expanding your consciousness of other industries that influence fashion is one of the most important things you could educate yourself in if you plan on succeeding in this cut-throat industry. The Curator’s Conference could be the first step on a journey where you meet other individuals who may be able to help you in the future. And also who knows, one day you might find yourself up on that stage presenting to future you’s.
