YUPntwk is an initiative of Connecticut Public focused on driving new connections, conversations and content. With the belief that arts and music are the cornerstone of socio-cultural wellness, YUPntwk is the place where we honor communities driven by self-expression. YUPntwk is designing programs and experiences for the emerging multicultural creative class with a particular focus on creators of color in Connecticut, typically 20-35 years of age. This includes artists, musicians, dancers, DJs, producers, photo/videographers, editors, conveners, creative entrepreneurs, and makers. We have joined forces with the public to co-produce content, partner on events and regularly convene likeminded people. Nurturing the next generation of young makers, trendsetters and influencers we seek out new stories and new storytellers.
