LIT presents #DroppinGems, for this month is about celebrating black and brown WOMXN creatives, and all are welcome. We are pleased to have Driely S. who has photographed for Beyonce, Pharrell, Vince Staples, Billie Eilish, Rico Nasty, AfroPunk, Gucci, Prada, Pyer Moss and more! Along with her we will have DJ King Marie who has DJ’d for NIKE, Jordan, Puma, NBA All Star events and many more. These creatives will also be paired up with local talents that are also on the same career trajectory, for instance Emily Kuester and DJ Queen Kae! Emily, is director and editor, with films in SXSW, Milwaukee Film, and more, with video series like Black Girl Training. And also DJ Queen Kae, who is a female DJ moving around in the DJing circuit from Milwaukee to Chicago. We look to bridge the gap with a panel discussion that dives into the blueprint of breaking through, and the cautions of being a black and brown women in the industry. This panel discussion will be moderated by Cree Myles.
The LIT Power Hour After party will be at the rooftop of NO Studios with performances from REYNA, and Auti Marie, and DJing and Emcee from DJ Lolo with FREE Food and alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.
