Miami Ad School – Brooklyn Campus

In addition to our college lectures, where 2-Tone and I discuss the parallels and similarities between jazz culture and hip-hop culture, we’ve begun to diversify our discussions, thanks to a suggestion by a friend of mine and sought after trend research expert Jody Turner (Culture of Future),  where we talk about creative development from three specific areas: creative content development, creative cultural engagement development, and creative branding development (essentially discussing the concept of trans-media); with the frame work of our talks being SHAOLIN JAZZ.

As with our cultural based discussions, this new set of talks are conducted at colleges and universities but specifically at those schools with marketing programs and will also include advertising and design schools, agencies, and brands.

We conducted our first talk at the  Miami Ad School’s Brooklyn campus (which took place prior to our COLOR of SOUND NYC event) as apart of their “Industry Hero Series.”   Thanks to Eva for inviting us as well as all of the students that attended.
