For the Culture Musicfest (FTCM) represents the wide-ranging aspects of culture that we influence: music, art, fashion, community, health & wellness, and education. FTCM was founded on the idea that all of our creativity, ingenuity, innovation and our diverse talents result in creating, supporting, driving, and influencing the culture. The very survival and existence of our communities is culture.
FTCM focuses, not only on amazing musicians and musicianship, but also issues of critical importance in our communities like health & wellness, financial literacy and education, and community/social activism and engagement.
At FTCM, we are committed to doing our part to help sustain the community by making hiring and partnering with minority-owned businesses a strategic imperative. Our production partners, cater, graphic design team, transportation provider, marketing partner, as well as our presenting radio partner - are all minority-owned and operated. This musicfest is for the culture, by the culture, and reflective because of & committed to the positive uplifting of our community’s culture.
