In science labs, a "culture" is a nutrient-rich bath, an environment that makes it possible for small living things to grow and flourish.
Another definition of culture is plainly how society spends its time. Can we take both of these definitions and put them together? Can we spend our time creating an environment for people to grow and flourish?
We can, and we have.
Since 2014 Greyt Culture (formerly Agumboot Arts) has gathered over 10,000 attendees to live programs, like CreativeMornings Cleveland and Agumboot Music Festival, spreading curiosity, encouraging creativity, and connecting artists and entrepreneurs to make things they love. There are many platforms under our broad banner to get involved. If you don't see what you're looking for, send us a note - we'd love to hear from you.
