Lucid NYC cultural events offer more than your average “meet up.” According to producers Julian Lion Boxenbaum and David Friedlander, they are “a conduit for smart and interesting people to meet one another in a relaxed and familiar social setting while learning about exciting new projects from leading edge thinkers.”  All this is presented over mouth-watering libations, scrumptious food and a laid back social networking vibe. Well, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

This month’s installment at Drom features James Percelay, one of the masterminds behind Thinkmodo‘s outrageously bold guerilla marketing campaigns, explaining the philosophy behind their “flying people project.”  Acclaimed experimental artist/designer/scientist/educator, Natalie Jerimijenko, will share her vision for “Smart Cities” of the future and award winning photographer, Kyoto Hamada, will discuss her experience shooting Fukushima.

Filling out the evening is Jonathan Batiste, a modern jazz musician and activist who has given new meaning to “New Orleans Jazz.”  Batiste will also give a special presentation about his curatorial work at the Jazz Museum of Harlem.
