Kruger wants to move the trend to a new, collaborative frontier, and to that end, she’s spearheaded Cross-Cultured, a ten-group initiative that offers a short-term, four-month membership card giving the YP generation an opportunity to sample a variety of cultural events listed on an online calendar. “We want to be more of a stage whereby we can spotlight participating institutions; we just want to highlight the other groups,” she says. “Rather than being an umbrella organization, we’re more of a spotlight. It’s a little like speed dat-ing: You can find the one for you.”
Want to learn more? Tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., Kruger and friends will host a free Cross-Cultured Launch Party, with food, drinks and a DJ, at DADA Art Bar, 2470 Broadway, as a way of introducing the new website. Membership cards are $30 and are good from July 1 through October 31. If you can’t make the party, visit crosscultured.org for all the details.
