Cannabis + Creativity

May 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Admission is free, but please book tickets below. Attendees must be 21 years or older.

Screening of Elana Frankel’s short documentary on six people who use cannabis to enhance their creativity, followed by a discussion with the director and some of the people featured in the film. Presented in conjunction with The Travel Agency, a cannabis store.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that film, television, and music wouldn't be the same without cannabis. But is that actually true? This short documentary follows six people—a working/everyday writer, a designer, a chef, a composer, a singer, and a musician and scientist who use cannabis to enhance their creativity... and one grandmother who isn't so sure.

Elana FrankelElana Frankel is the award-winning documentary filmmaker of Cannabis + Creativity. She is the founding editor-in-chief of the magazine Women and Weed and author of the book Women and Weed (Simon & Schuster/Centennial Media). Elana has been a guest lecturer at NYU, Brooklyn Law and RISD. Currently, she is the chair of the communications committee and former chair of the retail committee for the Cannabis Association of New York (CANY). Her experience as a multi-disciplinary creative with a trained eye for aesthetics, who is also analytical, operationally oriented and metrics driven, is the foundation for her consultantcy work with brands and retailers around the country.

The Travel Agency: a cannabis store logoThe Travel Agency is a BIPOC-founded company that believes legal cannabis has the power to repair the damage caused by the war on drugs. It has a Downtown Brooklyn store owned by those who have experienced cannabis-related injustices and its own Union Square dispensary directing over half of its profits to the Doe Fund, which provides transitional and permanent housing, employment, and support services to people who have experienced homelessness and incarceration.
