Converting a Business into a Cultural Destination
Here is how we can convert a business into a Cultural Destination:
First - the owner has to agree to create a safe and welcoming space for anyone walking into the business.
Second - Introduce music, art, food and other cultural symbols into the business to help create a unique experience.
Third - offer high quality products and experience so that they can be posted on Instagram and other social media as customers love to share their experiences with friends.
In the example below, Snelling Cafe, in partnership with African Economic Development Solutions and Little Africa and an African artist, Sara Endlaw, with minimal cost transformed a coffee shop and restaurant into an ethnic art gallery and making it so vibrant. Mayor Carter hosted one of his community listening sessions here.
