Knowledge is power. I think the more we educate people on local arts and have programming that is able to relate to people the more we will grow. Support for these type of endeavors is key, as is dialoguing with people and businesses that have the means to do so. We need to inspire them to invest in our art community and the best way to do that is by example. I think there are more people and businesses out there willing to support these endeavors than we think. They just need to be convinced as to why it is in everyone's best interest to make the investment.
Who is your favorite Colorado Creative?
My favorite Colorado Creatives right now are Donald Fodness, Sabin Aell and Rebecca Peebles. They are the amazing team that I was able to work with to conceptualize Direct Connect Denver, and I think they are all powerhouses! I can't wait to see what they do in the future, as well as to continue to work with them on other DCD projects.Continue reading for more from Danette Montoya.
