Please join us for a night of Green Edu-tainment as we introduce you to The Marcus Graham Project Headquarters, Summer Bootcamp Team, and how you can do your part to support our cause.
The summer bootcamp's client is Broccoli City (broccolicity.com), an organic lifestyle brand focused on educating the urban audience on the "green movement." The bootcampers, a group comprised of young African American men interested in careers in the advertising & media industry, will form a team synergistic with the structure of an Advertising Agency and work on developing a campaign for their client that speaks to the passion points of the young urban trendsetter. They will be asked to design a pop-up retail concept and launch event bringing those passion points to life via viral videos, print campaign, community service projects, and social media campaign. The bootcamp’s primary purpose is to provide diverse aspirants with the exposure and hands on experience necessary to solidify careers within the industry.
Along with music provided by Neo Soul Cafe, we will also serve complimentary food and beverage (while supplies last).
