FRESH: Live presents
“In With The New”

FRESH: Live took place June 5, 2018, at the AppNexus Razzle Dazzle Theater in New York City. For this inaugural event, FRESH gathered our speakers and special guests for a day of cutting-edge conversation about “the new” that we are seeing emerge today—from science to fashion, gender equality to afrofuturism, policy to protesting youth.

FRESH: Live manifests the mission of FRESH Speakers onto the main stage—centered around the belief that learning from a wider variety of humans makes for a smarter, more equitable world. Our goal is not only to create catalytic conversation between some of the most talented leaders we know, but also model what it looks like to convene and host gatherings that embody the principles of inclusion and belonging—not just tick diversity boxes, or preach to the usual choir.
