Description

Asians in Culture: The 88Rising Phenomenon | Sean Miyashiro at the Berkeley Forum

November 2, 6:00 PM | Location TBA

Event Description:

Join Sean Miyashiro, CEO, in a fireside chat as he speaks about 88rising, a hybrid media company and leading tastemaker for Asian youth culture. His talk will focus on the importance of making a place for Asians in hip-hop, how 88rising effortlessly bridges East to West while celebrating Asia's cultural vibrancy, and what it takes to succeed in the music industry.

With an uncanny and extraordinary vision for brand strategy and creative direction, Sean Miyashiro has made a career out of creating innovative brands that push boundaries to the next level. An out-of-the-box thinker with a proven ability to bring ideas to life, Miyashiro’s background is in music as a former Vice creative. 88rising, then, fits right into the profile, as a vision of the future. Responsible for breaking Keith Ape, Higher Brothers, and Rich Brian into the US market - among the first Asian hip hop artists to truly crossover - Sean masterfully blends knowledge of online viral marketing strategies with constant creativity, ingenuity, and leadership. The result is revolutionary: a celebration of progressive, inclusive youth culture, with a distinct Asian panache. There is much to be discovered in the unique, vibrant, cultural landscape of Asia, across music, fashion, art, food, and more - and 88rising is there for all of it. A true pioneer in the media and entertainment industry where nothing else comes close, the company is trailblazing the way for never-before-seen, groundbreaking content and quickly becoming a leader in progressive music, and the apex of youth culture worldwide. Heralded by Forbes as the bridge between East and West, and the face of a new generation of Asian youth by CNN, 88rising is truly an authentic crossing of oceans and the architect of a new youth culture - with Sean Miyashiro at its helm.
