PUBLIC ACCESS - a creative platform for big ideas and diverse voices - brings together a community to celebrate today’s youth who are changing culture through their bold creations and storytelling. Through the mixed media program, exceptional youth, who when given the opportunity to rise up, challenge the status quo and plant the seeds of change, then gather to discuss their passions and their movements.

Converse crowned, Miley Cyrus and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), symbols of today’s generation, and invited each to collaborate with the brand to co-create and host their own PUBLIC ACCESS episode. The organic format and open forum allows for each host to express themselves by engaging with their community in their own authentic way. With the help of their friends - a mix of artists, innovators, activists, and young visionaries - each host reflects on their aspirations, challenges and what in today’s moving culture matters most to them.


Maisie Williams’ episode features groundbreaking actors Millie Bobby Brown and Amandla Stenberg, along with R&B singer Syd, 17-year old Chef Flynn McGarry, and activists who are outspoken regardless of age. Exploring tools that inspire movements, Converse exclusively premieres the PUBLIC ACCESS episodes with the world through streams on Twitter the first week of September, bringing together the unique video series with real-time fan conversation and reaction through a Twitter timeline experience.


PUBLIC ACCESS will be available for free to logged-in and logged-out users on Twitter and connected devices globally. Fans will be able to access the stream at or via @Converse.
