‘Pop of Culture’ is a traveling cultivated space for Black entrepreneurs and creatives to showcase their businesses and brands. Each of their pop-up events is an opportunity to shop, network, eat, drink, and relish in the culture of Black creativity. Pop of Culture looks to provide a space and social resources that can contribute to the growth of small businesses and help Black brands flourish in their competitive industries.
Pre-pandemic, Pop of Culture had visited cities across the country such as Atlanta, Chicago, and New York City. The events are always free, and community members are encouraged to show up, bring friends and family, and enjoy the showcased brands and businesses! It’s an enjoyable way to support some of the most talented artists and creatives in your community.
Saturday, June 5, was the pop-up’s long-awaited return since before the pandemic. The event was held at ‘Vacancy Avenue’, a retail and event space in Inglewood, located on La Brea Avenue.
It was the first time Pop of Culture had landed in the Los Angeles area, and organizers made sure that it won’t be the last. Their next Los Angeles event is already scheduled for August 28, and vendors are encouraged to apply on the Pop of Culture website.
In an effort to continue to grow and expand their reach to Black businesses and creatives, Pop of Culture has partnered with ‘IFundWomen’, a startup funding organization for women entrepreneurs, and will be launching their first crowdfunding campaign on June 14.
