When we think of "creatives," we often think of "creators" -- artists, authors, musicians and actors. But Katie Kruger breaks out of that box. From her vantage point as board co-chair for the Denver Art Museum's CultureHaus young professionals group, which works to encourage cultural philanthropy in an up-and-coming demographic, she's had the chance to spin a few creative ideas of her own about how arts institutions can grow wider constituencies.
Her new initiative, Cross-Cultured, takes the gospel of an established group such as CultureHaus and applies it to others like it, from the Colorado Symphony's Remix to the Denver Film Society's Reel Social Club, giving the young professional crowd a chance to sample events hosted by ten different cultural organizations for the price of a single temporary membership.
Kruger, who loves and is inspired by art, has a lot to say about why it's important to have some in your life. Read on to learn more from her 100CC questionnaire.
