Launched in 2018, the Foreground Summit provides creatives and founders of color with a safe space to network, develop their skills, and learn how to connect with brands and foster partnerships. Beyond inspiration, the summit promises to offer a diverse group of entrepreneurs tangible takeaways that can be immediately applied to creative work.
The upcoming two-day summit, which kicks off Tuesday in Washington, D.C., was created by Tamon George and Gary Williams, Jr., who initially launched Creative Theory, a multicultural marketing agency that seeks to amplify voices of color through storytelling.
