We Put Creatives in Command

For the Culture

Why GANGGANG

GANGGANG isn’t bogged down in superficial discussions about diversity, equity and inclusion. Instead, we’re investing in the creative economy directly, paying the culture back with an intentional reparational slant. Creatives of color continue to be underrepresented and underrecognized for their contribution to culture. But we aim to change this. We believe that culture brings humanity together, and so we work every day to protect and promote it, by supporting a city’s makers in new, equitable, revenue-generating ways.

How we do what we do

GANGGANG activates the creative economy to produce more culture, beauty, and equity across cities. We do this by finding new ways to appreciate and financially support creatives of all kinds, with a focus toward those whose work has historically been exploited. Our teams push boundaries and challenge mindsets with creative vision, shifting the way our audiences view each other and the world around us through unmatched design, ingenuity, and execution. 

GANGGANG is a first-of-its-kind group that focuses purely and solely on culture and bringing the energy, shared benefits, and creators within the industry to the forefront.

"A city is in a dangerous place when its creatives stop dreaming."
- Alan Bacon

GANGGANG can creatively direct anything.

We take everyday creative pursuits and transform them into life-changing, brand-altering opportunities as it relates to performing arts, stage production and more. From large-scale production and entertainment to public art programs and artist curation/broker services, our work in this space improves perceptions and cultural relevance.
