Custom

Experiences

Our experiential agency arm works with socially conscious companies of all shapes and sizes to create, produce and execute cohesive branded campaigns that include everything from custom digital content to multi-day culinary and cocktail pop-ups, VIP experiences and public art installations.

Our consulting dollars are directly reinvested into our nonprofit to supplement grants and donor contributions so we can continue to fund our public programming and community efforts.

branded offerings

We are a full-service events agency specializing in hospitality-driven, culinary experiences built for meaningful interactions. We specifically work with mission-aligned businesses who invested in making their gatherings purposeful and thought-provoking. Given our background in public, community & cultural programming, our goal for every event is to move beyond entertainment to focus on relevant social messaging, serve intentional food & drink and create a place for boundary-pushing discourse amongst friends and strangers alike.

Digital Content

From recipe posts to long-form written series, podcasts to photo & video series, we produce mindful content that reflect the most important aspects of your brand.

Dinner & Cocktails

Family style or multi-course, fine dining or casual, wine or cocktail pairings, we've done them all and held these events across the country. We build each experience with your brand at the nexus and work with you every step of the way.

Discussion Salons

Looking to address a larger issue within your industry? Work with us to create a Salon series to do just that. We understand the emotional labor required to develop this type of programming and are dedicated to doing it properly. 

Custom Activations

There's a lot more we can do together! Popup exhibitions, city tours, interactive cocktail hours - if you can dream it, we'd love to do it.

Let's talk!

corporate offerings

We work with the DEI champions of various corporations to host private renditions of our flagship series and deploy our Experimental Salons framework for professional teams to address specific topics in their workplace (especially those within the spectrum of diversity, equity and inclusion). We've found these special team-building events make the most lasting impact when integrated into wider employee engagement and training initiatives.

 

Companies we've worked with include:
