Throwback: 'Translation' Release Party

As summer quickly approaches (and it gets more and more difficult to not play hooky from work), we at The Thread Mag are reflecting on one of our favorite moments of summer 2018: our ‘Translation’ Release Party.

The last weekend of June, 100 people braved the summer heat to celebrate the release of our first ever print edition. In 'Translation,’ we encouraged our participating artists to provide a window into who they are, their perspective and their culture. This edition featured 29 artists, including 5 collaborative partnerships and 6 interviews with New York-based creatives.

With the help of The Myriad, and our gracious hosts at In Support Of, we closed out pride weekend with a night of celebration, strong drinks, and great music. With performances from Layna, Cha’ves Jamall, Ms. White, and Halima, and sets by DJ Akili and DJ Booyah, we had a night that The Thread Mag will never forget.
