"Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil."
Super Bowl LII is coming to the Twin Cities and New Rules will open it's space for an exclusive night of great vibes with guest DJs, local art, designer & retail popup + NFL player appearances! Tickets are ALL INCLUSIVE, to include drinks and refreshments!

I AM MPLS! is presented by Be The Match.
A city isn’t just the land it inhabits.
Or the water that flows through it.
Or the buildings that tower over it.
It’s the people.
The dreamers. The doers. The historians. The iconoclasts. The scavengers. The creators. The tacticians. The generators.
It’s a vibrant gallery with hundreds of thousands of hearts and souls finding their own unique rhythms, gathering in groups of those that share the same beat.
Each year, we bring these collections together to celebrate the creative ties that bind us all in the creative hub of the north. For one night, we set a spark that creates new collaborations, new ideas, and new friendships.
The land, the water, and the buildings may bring us here, but it’s the people that truly allow us to say with pride and without hesitation – I AM MPLS!
This year Culture Piece Magazine is taking over to bring you an all POC lineup of models and creatives. Culture Piece Magazine is an editorial & high fashion online publication featuring art, culture, music, life as a Millennial.

A$AP Ferg ● Doperoots x Traplord ● In partnership with the X Games ● Benefiting the Stoked Organization
No Ends. is an event series presented by Doperoots and A$AP Ferg’s brand, Traplord, that fuses together passion points such as SKATE, MUSIC, ART, FOOD, & GAMING to create the perfect experience.
It started in LA with the first-ever No Ends., and is coming to Brooklyn this August with plans for Atlanta in October and Miami after that.
STOKED, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded on the belief that the courage and perseverance needed to learn how to skateboard, snowboard, and surf would be an ideal way to teach those life skills to youth from disadvantaged urban communities.
