Creative Responsibility is Social Responsibility: A Deep-Dive Into One of DC's Premier Partnerships
&pizza and Broccoli City will discuss their shared passion for social good and the concept of social responsibility in the creative field. In Broccoli City's world, that means balancing the popular festival it's known for with the brand's philanthropic efforts. For &pizza, it means using its position to support the communities the company inhabits because that's the right thing to do. The conversation will also touch on the genesis of Broccoli City and &pizza's collaborative space, Broccoli Bar, as well as the responsibility black creatives and entrepreneurs often face.
