*Earlier this month HBO hosted a multi-day, immersive pop-up experience in support of their new campaign “Our Stories To Tell” that celebrated and united creativity and community.

For this experiential event, HBO transformed Casita Hollywood (1323 Highland Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90028) into a multi-functional space that combined marketplace, co-working space, and event venue.

“Our Stories To Tell” was part of a larger multi-faceted initiative created by HBO to engage with and service diverse and multicultural audiences through cultural programming and relatable storytelling. This pop-up brought together creatives, creators, and natives to celebrate Los Angeles and the talent in it. Guests in attendance at “Our Stories To Tell” were privy to meaningful panel conversations with established and emerging talent and creatives, live musical performances, and had access to special events and diverse programming.
