A Sip is an unscripted conversation over drinks with influential creatives about their unconventional journeys, moderated by Issa Rae. Purposely set in South LA and communities of color across the nation, we aspire to inspire and ignite creatives to embark on their own artistic paths by inviting them to listen to a candid “fireside chat” between two trailblazing innovators.

A Sip looks to have uninhibited conversations in a fun, meaningful and intimate way. Our hope is to spark minds and make room for the next generation of mind-blowing visionaries. The room is filled with young people of color who may otherwise never get an opportunity to hear from such an esteemed group of creatives.


Check out the teaser from the last A Sip.
