Collaborations and Diverse Creative Ventures Take Center Stage at the Aug. 7 Creative Process Event
With so many diverse creative ventures happening in St. Louis, the Creative Process series is always bursting with cross-disciplinary collaborations. The evenings are structured into two parts: conversations and pitches. This format offers plenty of opportunity for celebrating and fostering multiple ventures during each session.
For the Aug. 7 Creative Process, hosted by the Saint Louis Fashion Fund at its Downtown offices, the first conversation is with Matt Kerns, executive director of the St. Lou Fringe Festival, which connects uncensored, unjuried performing arts with accessible and affordable performances for audiences. Kerns will share what uncensored art really is and how the festival, happening Aug. 13-18, appeals to professionals and amateurs alike.
On deck for the second conversation is Kelley Boster, the founder and designer at ReFash Studios, a fashion art studio that creates unique, upcycled pieces. Boster will focus on how she creates new, high-fashion looks from vintage and previously outdated items, as well as the importance of sustainable fashion.
The two pitches are from Samantha Smugala of Creative Mornings, a worldwide breakfast lecture series for creatives, and from celebrity stylist Farrah Shah.
An extra bonus for thirsty and hungry listeners: Margaritas will be provided, and the Mission Taco food truck will be on site.
Admission is free, but please RSVP online for the Creative Process event on Aug. 7 from 6-9 p.m. at the Saint Louis Fashion Fund in Downtown St. Louis. Everyone who RSVPs and attends will be entered into a drawing for Fashion Fund swag and two tickets to Speaking of Fashion, featuring Dapper Dan. The presenting sponsor is PGAV Destinations, with additional support provided by and the Arts and Education Council and the Regional Arts Commission.
