Production, Strategy, & Talent Management
Established by Baque Creative, Shaniqwa Jarvis and Something Special Studios, Social Studies was launched during Miami Art Basel 2017. The three-day, experiential event was created to empower and educate youth through creative, community-driven programming supported by brand and artist engagement. Occupying a multi-use space within Miami’s Design District, Social Studies served as a hub of culture and information, where each creative partner’s space was decorated to reflect one subject domain from American high school. In addition to pop-ups from brands such as 032c, Union, Awake, Some Ware, and No Vacancy Inn, Social Studies featured a book launch by Shaniqwa Jarvis and a series of educational programs and curatorial workshops led by Angelo Baque, Virgil Abloh, Chris Gibbs of Union Los Angeles, Tremaine Emory and Acyde of No Vacancy Inn, Cali Dewitt, Online Ceramics, Heron Preston, and more.
