Deep in the South Bronx, where the first melting pot was set ablaze by the birth of Hip-Hop, resides the Compound, a creative space where art, music, fashion, and sports are fused, inspiring an atmosphere of innovation tucked away in bunker type building. The space serves as an adult playground for work, curated events, and meetings of the minds; where various artistic people come together to sharpen each-other and give life to imagination.
Described by Nylon magazine “as an arcade of cultured art”, The Compound has taken a life of it’s own in recent years. An industry secret has now made its way to the pages of Huffington Post and Billboard Magazine as a destination spot with daily requests for invite and location reveal.
