In today’s market, content is currency. Whether you’re an artist interested in learning how to leverage your work to be the face of a product (see FKA twigs & Google Glass), or a company searching for the next exciting cultural trend or artist to align your brand with – this is the event for you!
Join ELNYA on November 18th for a “create your own adventure” event at Freecandy Creative Space in Brooklyn. We’ll be exploring the ins and outs of artist/business collaboration, how to spot cultural trends, how to get your work noticed by trend-spotting brands, and the art of staying true to your work once you’ve nabbed that profitable partnership.
How it works
We’ll be breaking into small group sessions, (each 20 minutes), so you can maximize your networking experience and learn from as many industry leaders as possible. When you arrive you’ll be given a map, and you choose which artists and/or brands you’d like to hear from. Have an idea you’d like feedback on now? We’re offering a limited number of spots in the “Shark Tank” where you can pitch your idea to an expert panelist for one-on-one feedback in a 10 minute session. At the end we’ll enjoy some beats and drinks as we gather everyone together for final casual hangout (DJ included).
When: 6:30-9:30pm (Program starts at 7pm), early December. Exact date announced soon!
Where: Freecandy Creative Space; 905 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11238

About our awesome co-collaborators:
Greetings from the Freecandy confectionery!
Three years ago, armed only with a vision and belief in the capacity of creative ideas and the Arts, we created FREECANDY. In that time, FREECANDY has become one of Brooklyn’s leading independent spaces for the showcase of emerging visual artists and performers. We cannot be prouder of what we’ve accomplished, but we would not be FREECANDY if we didn’t keep pushing.
With your help, our space will soon be reborn as Freecandy Creative Space (FCCS), Clinton Hill’s first creative coworking space, photo studio and gallery and non-profit arts organization dedicated to the development of local emerging artists and independent creative professionals. FCCS will continue the original Freecandy mission, by convening a community of like-minded creatives under one roof, determined to make culture and develop innovative ideas.
As free creatives, we believe an open communal environment accelerates the process of creativity. FCCS will provide our members the requisite office tools and guided serendipity needed for ideas to be sparked and realized. In addition to daytime coworking, FCCS will also offers exclusive evening activities such as classes, talks and performances for our member community.
Over the next 30 days, we are seeking to raise $60K to support the renovation of our space, add to our digital presence and provide the tools for our members to create, innovate and build. We’ve set up some great perks for your contribution, in addition to them being tax-deductible.

For the past 3 years, Freecandy has provided a space for the showcase of emerging artists. We’ve hosted hundreds of shows for new artists who would otherwise, not have gotten the opportunity to show or perform their work. Now as a 501c3 non-profit arts organization, and with your assistance, we can expand our presence, with greater support for these artists, arts programs and classes for our community.
Globally recognized artists, renowned creatives and Grammy nominated performers all Freecandy home. With your help, we can do so much more!
