Julian Mitchell, award winning content creator and contributing writer at Forbes and The Huffington post will be explaining the new business model for creators and how to capitalize on the wave of authentic entrepreneurship.
Julian launched REVOLT's network (owned by Sean "Diddy" Combs) as the social media director-shaping the voice, content, conversations and platforms. REVOLT was the first network to launch digital. He then became the editorial director, building out the bi-coastal team of writers and content producers.
Back in May we launched our first BREAD event featuring Benoni Tagoe, the business developer of the hit web-series “Awkward Black Girl”. We heard from you that you left inspired and energized. You told us you wanted to hear more transparent and vulnerable stories that demonstrate that forging one’s legacy is not a linear process and the courage to pursue one’s dream becomes palpable when in community with those on a similar trajectory.
At BREAD we believe that our individual and collective stories have the power to transform ourselves, our communities and turn our dreams into legacies. We are excited to announce that we are working in partnership with ArtsEmerson for a special two day event that explores the theme of legacy.
On Thursday, October 8th we will be hosting a free event featuring Julian Mitchell, award winning content creator and contributing writer at Forbes and The Huffington Post.
Julian will be talking about the the new business model for creators and how to capitalize on the emerging wave of authentic entrepreneurship.
We know that fulfilling one’s potential and pursuing one’s dream elicits joy, as well as challenges. Foraging one’s own path and definition of success never has an ending point, particularly when we our ultimate goal is how to live a meaningful life that adds value and contributes to the lives of others. We cannot wait for Julian to share his personal story, as well as talk what he sees as as key to turning your dream into your legacy, which is your own truth. That is the foundational power only you possess.
In partnership with Arts Emerson we want to engage in a conversation of individual and collective legacy, together, as a community. We hope that you will join us on Friday, October 9th for a pre-show mixer featuring Julian, as BREAD takes over the theatre for the production of the play, Mr. Joy by playwright and ArtsEmerson Artist-in-Residence Daniel Beaty (Breath & Imagination, Emergency).
He returns with another moving reflection on transforming pain into power, this time through the virtuosic performance by acclaimed actress Tangela Large. A poignant, funny and stirring solo piece, Mr. Joy invites us to consider how we respond to violence as individuals and as a community, and the power of the invisible ties that bind us all. You can purchase $15 tickets for that evening with the discount code BREAD15.
After the performance we will be hosting a post play conversation to discuss the idea of our communal legacy. How do we look to the future as we reconcile with the historical systemic inequities we have inherited? What will our legacy be in dismantling ideologies and actively chose not to reinforce a path that has been written. What is the role of imagination as we continue to aspire and pursue a more just and equitable world for all to thrive and live out their personal legend?
Our partnership with ArtsEmerson allows us to continue to create spaces that allow us to express and bear witness to each other’s dreams. There is a power in being and being seen.
We hope that you join BREAD + ArtsEmerson for this special back to back event as we re-imagine the possibility and potential as we envision our legacy as a community.
