aspire Design Tour Harlem, partnered with NYCxDESIGN

May 19, 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Experience the vibrant fusion of design and culture in the heart of Harlem with the inaugural aspire Design Tour Harlem 2024. Inspired by the cultural richness of the Harlem Renaissance, this immersive event pays homage to the resilience and creativity of the African-American community amidst the backdrop of 1920s America.

From Langston Hughes’ and Maya Angelou’s iconic brownstones, to other storied sites, embark on curated trolley, walking, and cart tours through Harlem’s neighborhoods. Encounter local artists, musicians, and the indomitable spirit of this transformative era, celebrating Harlem’s enduring legacy as a beacon of cultural innovation and expression. But the excitement doesn’t stop there! Join us in Harlem’s beloved establishments, including NILU Harlem, a boutique with local artists, and Minton’s Playhouse (a historic speakeasy and original jazz club) to continue the celebration long into the evening, toasting to both old friends and new as we honor the past and embrace the future of design.

This event is part of the aspire Design Tour Program.
