Openhouse is happy to announce our collaboration with Leila Antakly, founder and editor of NinuNina, the influential creative blog. American-born Antakly is half-Colombian, half-Syrian and harnesses her well-read site to showcase photographers, artists, musicians and fashionistas. “I felt I knew a lot of creative people who did really good work and wanted to be able to share their work with a larger audience,” Antakly says. (Check out some of Leila’s interviews with photographers Marco Walker, Billy Nava and Tomas Loewy.
Now that Leila’s online presence is humming, she’s interested in building offline content too as a way to promote creatives. Pop ups! Antakly joined the team at Openhouse to help put together amazing pop ups for Park Here, the indoor park we’re bringing back this December, and beyond. She’ll also be curating some content for Facebook and our blog, too.
Antakly brings a wealth of experience with her – from helping to produce a documentary about the Chelsea Hotel to teaching English in Cambodia and setting up dozens of trunk shows, she’ll be perfect for the pop-up world.
