It’s the age-old story. Boy loves culture. Boy meets pandemic. Boy talks to other boys and girls who also love culture. Boys and girls come together to launch a gateway to the best virtual cultural content out there (while we’re stuck in here…).
Not sure if the story is terribly unique, but we think our commitment to our beloved New Day Culture community is. As a “band of brothers and sisters” from various culture and live entertainment backgrounds, we believe New Day Culture is all about delivering the absolute richest, most engaging virtual cultural content to our subscribers without limits. Equally as important to us is that every subscriber has the opportunity to engage, contribute, and make New Day Culture a favorite destination in its own right. This is your platform, so go nuts and let us help you along the way!
We hope you find something that makes you say “Wow.” Or at least helps you pass the next 15 minutes. The virtual cultural landscape is changing every day, and our team is committed to diving deep [into our office chairs] to point to the best experiences around the world. We’ve gone WAAAY down the interweb rabbit hole, so you don’t have to… just sit back (or lean forward) and New Day your way to the world’s wonders!
