Here's a new podcast episode to listen to (It's our 25th to date! Which means we have an additional 24 that you can listen to, while you're practicing social distancing). In this episode, Carlos describes the plucky, creative "solopreneur" artists who make the art scene tick, and what city hall does to keep it going.
Albuquerque native Carlos Contreras has made a name for himself as a slam poet who now organizes community engaged art events through Immastar Productions. We caught up with him during his tenure at the City of Albuquerque as the municipality's Director of Marketing and Innovation. Find out what happened when The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking asked him to share his insights through teaching a session entitled, "Introduction to Creative Placemaking" at the 2019 Midwest Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit.
